Log-normal frailty models fitted as Poisson generalized linear mixed models: New evidence from simulations

Katharina Hirsch, Andreas Wienke & Oliver Kuss
The equivalence of a survival model with a piecewise constant baseline hazard function and a Poisson regression model has been known at least since the 1970s. As shown recently by Feng et al., this equivalence carries over to the case of correlated survival data: A frailty model with a log-normal frailty[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
