Notes from Dr. James' lecture:

General Bootstrap Procedures for the Aalen-Johansen Estimator

Non-homogeneous Markov process models can be used to describe many important phenomena associated with survival/event history analysis. Aalen and Johansen (1978) developed a procedure for estimatng the transition probabilities in such models. The well-known Kaplan-Meier estimator can be viewed as a special case of the Aalen-Johansen estimator.

Random weighted bootstrap methods for approximating distributional properties of the Aalen-Johansen estimators will be discussed.
