4 Stratification  Different stratum are allowed to have different baseline  hazard functions. Hazard functions do not need to be parallel between  different stratum. Essentially results in a “weighted” hazard ratio being  estimated: weighted over the different strata. Useful for “nuisance” confounders (where you do not care  to estimate the effect). Does not allow you to evaluate interaction or confounding  of stratification variable (will miss possible interactions).

7 Age is a common confounder in Cox  Regression, since age is strongly related to  death and disease. You may control for age by adding baseline  age as a covariate to the Cox model. A better strategy for large-scale longitudinal  surveys, such as NHANES, is to use age as  your time-scale (rather than time-in-study). You may additionally stratify on birth cohort to  control for cohort effects.    2. Using age as the time-scale  in Cox Regression
