Abstract

A class of semiparametric hazards regression models called the accelerated hazards models was introduced to identify the covariate effect characterized by the scale-change between hazard functions. In this article, we compare the accelerated hazards models with several other popular classes of regression models in statistical literature for censored survival data. We also propose and study some test statistics to assess the models' adequacy. Simulation studies are conducted to evaluate the performance of the test statistics. Actual clinical trials data are analyzed to demonstrate the proposed models and test statistics.
