AbstractThe analysis of survival times, or in more general terms, the analysis
of time to event variables is concerned with models for censored
observations. Because we cannot always wait until the event of interest
actually happens, the methods discussed here are required for an
appropriate handling of incomplete observations where we only know that
the event of interest did not happen within ...
Objective
ContentDuring the course, we will study the most important methods and models
for censored data, including
- general concepts of censoring,
- simple summary statistics,
- estimation of survival curves,
- frequentist inference for two and more groups, and
- regression models for censored observations
