46) Wt i ) where Ij = {i: xi ∈ Rj }, for j = 1, 2, . . , M. Define M M χ 2 (β) = Zj (β) 2 = j =1 [ i∈Ij Wt i − E( Var( j =1 i∈Ij i∈Ij Wt i )]2 Wt i ) . 47) Since {Wt i }s, for i ∈ Ij , are independent, the mean of the sum of the independent random variables are the sum of the individual means of the independent random variables, Wt i = E i∈Ij E(Wt i ) = i∈Ij i∈Ij ui ui + 1 H0 (ti ) exp( β V i ) = i∈Ij 1 + H0 (ti ) exp( β V i ) . 48) Also, Wt i = Var i∈Ij i∈Ij i∈Ij H0 (ti ) exp( β V i ) = i∈Ij ui 1 + ui Var(Wt i ) = 1 + H0 (ti ) exp( β V i ) · 1 1 + ui 1 .

7) where SE (z) and fE (z) are the survival function and density function of the error distribution and z = [ln(T ) − µ0 ]/σ0 . The values of ψ can be computed for a number of Discretizing a continuous covariate in survival studies 39 special cases. 11) for the log normal regression with a normal distribution for E. Table 6 shows the results of fitting the exponential, Weibull, log logistic and log normal accelerated failure time models to the bone marrow transplant data. In the table we see that there is a marginal effect of age on outcome when age is treated continuously.

36) where Ci = 1 1 −ui uj /j ! j =0 e i . Here, Ci = 1 1 −ui uj /j ! j =0 e i = 1 1 . 37) Let Wt be the truncated Poisson random variable having only two values, 0 and 1. Then, for k = 0, 1, P (Wt i = k) = e−ui uki uki 1 · = . e−ui (ui + 1) k! (ui + 1) · k! 38), the probability mass function for Wt i can be expressed as f (wt i , ui ) = ti uw i = (ui + 1) · wt i ! ui 1 + ui wti 1− ui 1 + ui 1−wti . 39) . 40) Let δi = ui /(1 + ui ), then w f (wt i , ui ) = δi i (1 − δi )1−wi = (1 − δi ) exp wt i log δi 1 − δi Here, log δi 1 − δi = log H0 (ti ) exp β V i = log H0 (ti ) + β V i .
