Survival analysis analyzes data where the outcome variable is time until typically a binary event of interest (e.g. death, survival). I get that and can read/learn about that.
What do you call it when you want to do a survival analysis but the event of interest is not binary anymore but multinomial ?
My event of interest has multiple states:
- lost-to-follow up
- complete treatment (but not cured)
- continuing treatment
While one could certainly analyze these separately, that does not make sense... Part of the struggle is what do I call this type of analysis so I can learn about it!
Weblinks on the name/analysis would also be helpful.
