PMID:  6648145     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Many mathematical representations are possible both for the frequency distribution of survival time and for the effect on that distribution of explanatory variables. A short review is given of the main types of model, the techniques available for model choice, the consequences of assuming a particular form and methods for assessing goodness of fit. Effects of model misspecification are discussed briefly.
