This chapter presents some concluding thoughts from the author. It comments on criticisms of studies using survival analysis, and on directions for future development. It calls for the continuous development and improvement of approaches to handling clustered event times, the need to solidify the statistical theories of survival analysis by connecting the existing models (e.g., the Kaplan–Meier estimator and the Cox proportional hazards model) to the study of counting process and martingale theory, and a more innovative and wider application of the advanced survival models to solving research problems outside the field of biomedics.

Keywords:   survival analysis, statistical theories, clustered event times
