Defining causal meditation with a longitudinal mediator and a survival outcome

In the context of causal mediation analysis, prevailing notions of direct and indirect effects are based on nested counterfactuals. These can be problematic regarding interpretation and identifiability especially when the mediator is a …


What price semiparametric Cox regression?

Cox’s proportional hazards regression model is the standard method for modelling censored life-time data with covariates. In its standard form, this method relies on a semiparametric proportional hazards structure, leaving the baseline …


Proportional cross-ratio model

Cross-ratio is an important local measure of the strength of dependence among correlated failure times. If a covariate is available, it may be of scientific interest to understand how the cross-ratio varies with the covariate as well as time …

Hidden three-state survival model for bivariate longitudinal count data

A model is presented that describes bivariate longitudinal count data by conditioning on a progressive illness-death process where the two living states are latent. The illness-death process is modelled in continuous time, and the count data are …


Parametric estimation of association in bivariate failure-time data subject to competing risks: sensitivity to underlying assumptions

There has arisen a considerable body of research addressing the estimation of association between paired failure times in the presence of competing risks. In a 2002 paper, Bandeen-Roche and Liang proposed the conditional cause-specific hazard …

Blockchain-Effekte im Banking und im Wealth Management

Es steht fest, dass Blockchain-Technologie die Welt verändern wird. Weit weniger klar ist, wie genau dies passiert. Ein englischsprachiges Whitepaper des Fintech-Unternehmens Avaloq untersucht, welche Einsatzszenarien es im Banking und in der Vermögensverwaltung geben könnte – „Blockchain: Plausibility within Banking and Wealth Management“. Einige dieser plausiblen Einsatzszenarien haben sogar das Potenzial für eine massive Disruption. Ein bereits existierendes Beispiel liefert der Initial Coin Offering-Markt: ICO statt IPO.
