There are many situations where intermittent short-term exposures of a certain kind are thought to temporarily enhance the risk of onset of an adverse health event (illness). When the hazard rate of the illness is small it is desirable to investigate this possible association using only data on cases occurring in a finite observation period. Here we extend a method for such an analysis by allowing the baseline hazard for the illness to depend on the increasing age over the observation period...[Show more]
