Dear statalist,

I think I have figured out how to run the MLE via MATA - but am
surprised the results are different from streg.
Does anyone know of a way to get a clear explanation of how streg
manages estimation with time varying covariates?
Or have any suggestions about what could be going on?

To use time-varying covariates with -streg-, one typically has to do
"episode splitting" prior to running -streg- itself. The sub-episodes
are survival time intervals within which the tvcs are assumed constant.
