Extending the regression model to analyse duration data, which vary over time and are ’right‐censored’, using the example of government durations. Explanations cover the exponential model and its extension to the Weibull model; discrete hazard rates; time‐varying covariates; multiple destinations data; and Cox's technique of partial likelihood. The example demonstrates the use of SPLUS, LIMPDEP, and STATA5 software.

Keywords: duration data; exponential models; hazard rates; LIMDEP; SPLUS; STATA5; Weibull model
