Survival Data: Proportional Hazards Model

Statistical Analysis of Epidemiologic Data

Oxford University Press

The success of a model-based approach depends on choosing a model that accurately reflects the relationships within the data. This choice requires knowledge of the statistical properties of the model and a clear understanding of the phenomenon being investigated. One of the many useful models applied to survival data is the proportional hazards model. This chapter describes this model in simple terms, illustrating its properties and providing insight into the process of analyzing survival experience data using statistical modeling techniques.
