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.
