This chapter describes the conceptual underpinnings of the Cox regression model and demonstrates how to fit it to data. Section 14.1 begins by developing the Cox model specification itself, demonstrating why it is a sensible representation. Section 14.2 describes how the model is fit. Section 14.3 examines the results of model fitting, showing how to interpret parameters, test hypotheses, evaluate goodness-of-fit, and summarize effects. Section 14.4 concludes by presenting strategies for displaying results graphically.

Keywords:   continuous-time hazard, Cox regression model, model fitting, parameters, hypotheses, goodness-of-fit
