This chapter reviews the first type of multivariate model analyzing time-to-event data: the discrete-time models. The primary feature of this type of model is its approximation of hazard rate by using probability estimated from a person-time data set. When the study focuses on a single event, the analyst uses a binary logistic regression to estimate the probability. When the study focuses on multiple events (i.e., termination of study time due to more than one reason), the analyst uses a multinomial logit regression to estimate multiple probabilities. The discrete-time model of multiple events is also known as competing-risks analysis. The chapter begins with an overview of the discrete-time models. It then describes data conversion and the binary logistic regression for analyzing a single event. Finally, it reviews issues related to data conversion and the multinomial logit model for analyzing multiple events.

Keywords:   multivariate model analysis, time-to-event data, discrete-time models, binary logistic regression, multinomial logit regression
