ST 736 - Survival Analysis


A comprehensive introduction to the principals and methods for the analysis of time-to-event data. The topics covered include types of censoring and truncation, common nonparametric (e.g., Kaplan-Meier estimator) and parametric (e.g., Cox model) approaches, model checking methods, sample size, and power estimation. While the theoretical basis for methodology will be discussed, the primary focus of the course will be on model selection, data analysis, and interpretation of results. Extensive use of SAS procedures for survival analysis will be incorporated into the course.
