With this explanation in mind, we will now focus on articulating theory concerning the expected hazard rate (likelihood) that motor carriers receiving warning flags at the start of the CSA program will come to exit this flagged status.
Of arguably more utility than the survivor function in EHA is the hazard function, or hazard rate. The hazard rate is defined as the rate in which the duration or event ends (i.e., the event has been experienced), given that the target event or the duration has not ended prior to that particular time interval (Box-Steffensmeier & Jones, 1997).
