mets: Analysis of Multivariate Event Times

Implementation of various statistical models for multivariate event history data. Including multivariate cumulative incidence models, and bivariate random effects probit models (Liability models). Also contains two-stage binomial modelling that can do pairwise odds-ratio dependence modelling based marginal logistic regression models. This is an alternative to the alternating logistic regression approach (ALR).
