Perform Buckley-James Estimation
Check this box to perform survival analysis using the specified model and assuming some of the observations are right-censored.
Estimation is performed by iteratively fitting the model with an updated dependent variable that replaces censored observations with estimates of their true time-to-event values.
The method is a generalization of the original regression algorithm of Buckley and James (1979) 1 as expanded upon by Glasson (2007, RMIT PhD Thesis).
Note : You must specify the time-to-event dependent variable (this variable can be log -transformed) as the Dependent Variable on the General tab. You must also specify the Censor Variable and other options on this tab.
