Parametric regression models are widely used in the modeling of survival data under various diseases. The aim of this paper is to compare the performance of the common parametric models namely, Exponential, Weibull, Gompertz, Lognormal and Loglogistic using Breast Cancer data. The result shows that Lognormal model is better than other models.
