Adjusted regression estimation for time-to-event data with differential measurement error. (English) Zbl 1284.62441
Summary: Differential measurement error data plausibly arise in epidemiology and biomedical studies but have been rarely dealt with explicitly, especially for time-to-event data. We propose an estimation equation correction method in semiparametric censored linear regression to deal with differential measurement error for time-to-event data with validation samples. The method does not require explicit modelling of the error-prone covariates and leads to unbiased estimation.
