The validity to apply the Cox model for data is usually based on checking the proportional hazards assumption. It’s an interesting problem to investigate whether checking this assumption is sufficient as an evidence to fit data with the Cox model. On the other hand, when proportional hazards assumption fails, the Accelerated Failure Time (AFT) model is a popular alternative to the Cox model. However, when data include time-dependent covariates there are no convenient tools to check if AFT is appropriate for the data. An general class model termed “extended hazard model”, which contains the Cox and AFT models as its special case may be helpful to study the above problems. Because under the nested structure, we may test the fit of Cox and AFT models for data. Finally, we demonstrate the new model through a case study of Taiwanese HIV/AIDS cohort data.
