We will consider inference for various marginal temporal functions of a multistate system such as the state occupation probabilities, the integrated transition hazards, the state entry, exit and sojourn time distributions. For most parts, we will not assume a Markov or semi-Markov system. Nonparametric estimators under right censored, current status and interval censored data will be constructed. In this talk, we will consider construction of nonparametric regression estimators of the above quantities given a continuous covariate.
