Association Analysis of Bivariate Survival Data Based on Copulas


Perform association analysis of bivariate survival data based on copula models. Two different ways to estimate the association parameter in copula models are implemented. A goodness-of-fit test for a given copula model is implemented. See Emura, Lin and Wang (2010) <doi:10.1016/j.csda.2010.03.013> for details. A more general reference for the analysis of bivariate survival data is Emura, Matsui, and Rondeau (2019).
