Regression Analysis of Panel Count Data I
This chapter discusses regression analysis of panel count data. As discussed before, unlike recurrent event data, panel count data involve an extra observation process and this observation process may be independent of or could be related to the underlying recurrent event process of interest. In this chapter, we consider the situation where the two processes are independent of each other completely or conditionally given covariates. The situation where the two processes are related is investigated in the next chapter.
