I'm looking to run a competing risk discrete-time survival model with college retention data (with 0=dropout, 1=retained, 2=graduated for each semester) In Asparouhov, Muthen & Muthen 2006 it briefly mentions that a competing risk model is possible in MPLUS but I'm having trouble finding any examples and am unsure how the coding would differ from a traditional discrete-time survival analysis. Any help would be very appreciated!

You have to analyze each event variable separately while treating the other events as censoring. See for example

Ah, I see. I'll give that a shot, thanks for the help!

Hi there, I am looking at mortality risk from sitting time. I have done all-cause mortality. I want to model specific cause mortality risk. Can MPlus handle these models? From the above seems possible although I am not sure the best option is to model each cause of mortality separately and treat other causes of mortality as censored. Is that the best way of doing this in MPLUS? Thanks! Borja

I think that is the way to go.

Thanks, Tihomir.
You are being of great help with all my survival analyses questions. I appreciate it that.
