  • Title: Equal Care in All of Sweden?
  • Short description:

    Sweden strives for equal care across the country. An important question when
    evaluating and comparing the effects of care between different regions
    (landsting) is how much of the differences that are due to random effects and
    how much can be accounted for by structural differences between the regions. One
    option is to model the survival time of patients using a cox-regression with a
    suitable penalty term (lasso) that groups regions with similar effects
    together.
