Survival Analysis covers both the theory and practice of survival methodology. Assuming no previous knowledge of survival analysis, this seminar will turn you into a knowledgeable and skilled user of these indispensable techniques.

This seminar covers the essential tools that are needed to do time-to-event analysis. Topics include censoring, Kaplan-Meier estimation, Cox regression, time-dependent covariates, competing risks, discrete-time analysis, heterogeneity, stratification, and repeated events. 

Here are a few of the topics that you won’t want to miss:
•	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.
•	How to compute R-squared.
•	When and how to correct for unobserved heterogeneity.
•	How frequently to measure independent variables. 
•	What to do if there is more than one kind of event.
•	How to test for sensitivity to informative censoring.
  
This is a hands-on course with at least one hour of carefully planned and supervised exercises each day. Examples will be covered in both SAS and Stata. R notes are also available upon request.
