## aftgee: Accerated Failure Time with Generalized Estimating Equations
## aftgee: Accelerated Failure Time with Generalized Estimating Equations
The __aftgee__ package implements recently developed inference procedures for the accelerated failure time
(AFT) models with both the rank-based approach and the least squares approach.
For the rank-based approach, the package allows various weight choices and uses an induced smoothing procedure
that leads to much more efficient computation than the linear programming method.
With the rank-based estimator as an initial value, the generalized estimating equation (GEE) approach is used as
an extension of the least squares approach to the multivariate case, where the within cluster dependency is
accountered for with working covariance structures.
accounted for with working covariance structures.
Additional sampling weights are incorporated to handle missing data
needed as in case-cohort studies or general sampling schemes.
