Defining a transition matrix for multi-state modelling

In this post we’ll take a look at how to define a custom transition matrix for use with our multistate package in Stata. The transition matrix A transition matrix governs the movement of a process between possible states. Within multi-state survival analysis, and particularly, the implementation of multi-state models in Stata, the transition matrix containsContinue reading “Defining a transition matrix for multi-state modelling”

multistate v4.4.0: semi-parametric multi-state modelling

multistate version 4.4.0 has been released! Ok, that may have happened a few weeks ago… The headlines: predictms now supports the Cox model as a transition model, estimated usingmerlin or stmerlin Predictions from a multi-state Cox model are implemented using asimulation approach Supported predictions from a multi-state Cox model include transitionprobabilities, probability, and length ofContinue reading “multistate v4.4.0: semi-parametric multi-state modelling”
