Recent Blog Post: “For Causal Analysis of Competing Risks, Don’t Use Fine & Gray’s Subdistribution Method”
Dr. Allison argues that one of the more popular methods for regression analysis of competing risks—the analysis of subdistribution hazards, introduced by Fine and Gray (1999)—is not valid for causal inference. Instead, he recommends the traditional method of analyzing cause-specific hazards, treating competing events as censoring.
