Survival methods are explicitly designed to deal with censoring and time-dependent covariates in a statistically correct way. Originally developed by bio statisticians, these methods have become popular in sociology, demography, psychology, economics, political science, and marketing.
Survival Analysis covers both the theory and practice of survival methodology. Assuming no previous knowledge of survival analysis, this course will turn you into a knowledgeable and skilled user of these indispensable techniques. Here are a few of the skills you will acquire:
•How to organize survival data.
•How to choose the right time axis.
•When to use discrete vs. continuous time methods.
•What to do about nonproportionality.
If you need to analyze longitudinal event data and have a basic statistical background, this seminar is for you. You should have a good working knowledge of the principles and practice of multiple regression, as well as elementary statistical inference.
The course is joint hosted by Statistical Horizons and Metrika Consulting and will be taught by Dr. Paul Allison on February 22 as part of the 2018 Stata Winter School. To learn about the course click HERE.
