They draw on, and occasionally are, unique assets for brand new our bodies of information. As such, monetary points of healthiness contains an invaluable mix of relevance and rigor.

1%). 26). The combined effect of illegitimacy, advanced maternal age, and previous pregnancies is substantial. 1). 23). These estimates were derived from a selected data base in the context of a specific parametric model. The conclusion that prenatal care reduces preterm delivery may not withstand alternative data bases, or a formulation other than the proportional hazards model of (3) and (4). It is noteworthy, however, that the estimate and standard error of the parameter a changed only minimally when I included other explanatory variables,.

Live births and fetal deaths (Massachusetts, all races, 1975-76). nonrandomly missing observations is therefore not addressed. Second, I consider both live births and fetal deaths. Inclusion of fetal deaths admits the possibility that prenatal care prevents spontaneous abortion or other causes of premature delivery resulting in death during labor.

The alternative of analyzing the pregnancies of women of all races, with indicator variables for each race, does not appear warranted at this stage.

But a completely analogous argument could be applied to the determination of the hazard rate Xv. If we assume that hV(vIX,S) = hV(v IX)S, where 6 is the unobserved characteristic, and if 6 similarly has a gamma density at the onset of pregnancy, and if 6 is distributed independently of E , then we can derive a likelihood L f in a manner analogous to that for L?. 3. 2, and the estimate of the variance of the observed regressor has a small standard error. The estimate of wvis similarly increased.
