Survival Data: Estimation Of Risk
Therapeutic trials usually involve individuals observed over time where the outcome might be death or the recurrence of a specific disease. A basic characteristic that separates survival data from other kinds of data is that the outcome is frequently not observed for all study subjects. Special statistical methods exist to compensate for the incomplete nature of this kind of data. The theory and application of these methods is called survival analysis. This chapter discusses two general approaches to survival analysis — one parametric and one nonparametric.
