Abstract

We attempt to estimate the heterogeneity between individuals in two practical cases from survival analysis. One is concerned with the variation between couples as regards the chance of achieving conception. The other example is based on data for a number of women concerning the risk of expulsion of the intrauterine contraceptive device. In both cases simple mixing models fit well with the observations.
