Competing risks data arise when study subjects are subject to multiple types of failure events. The competing risks events are terminating, in that the onset of one event precludes the observation of other events. Moreover, the event times are correlated, imposing dependent censoring on each other. Denote the latent failure times to different events by T 1 , T 2 , … , T k $ T_1, T_2, \ldots ,T_k $ , where k ≥ 2 $ k \ge 2 $ denotes the number of failure types. One can only observe the time to the first failure T = min ( T 1 , T 2 , … , T k ) $ T=\min (T_1,T_2,\ldots ,T_k) $ and the type of the first failure ? $ \varepsilon $ , where ? ∈ { 1 , 2 , … , k } $ \varepsilon \in \{1,2,\ldots ,k\} $ .
