Censored quantile regression survival models with a cure proportion

Naveen Narisetty and Roger Koenker
Cemmap Working Paper CWP56/19

A new quantile regression model for survival data is proposed that permits a positive proportion of subjects to become unsusceptible to recurrence of disease following treatment or based on other observable characteristics. In contrast to prior proposals for quantile regression estimation of censored survival models, we propose a new “data augmentation” approach to estimation. Our approach has computational advantages over earlier approaches proposed by Wu and Yin (2013, 2017). We compare our method with the two estimation strategies proposed by Wu and Yin and demonstrate its advantageous empirical performance in simulations. The methods are also illustrated with data from a Lung Cancer survival study.

We compare two approaches to using information about the signs of structural shocks at specific dates within a structural vector autoregression (SVAR): imposing ‘narrative restrictions’ (NR) on the shock signs in an otherwise set-identified SVAR; and casting the information about the shock ...
