Spring 2018
Section: 01  
Certificates: Applied Data Science
Course Cluster: Data Analysis Minor

Survival or event history analysis focuses on modeling and analysis of time-to-event data--such as onset of a disease; duration of a strike; failure of a biological, physical, or social system; or recidivism). This course introduces students to survival and hazard functions, the analysis of censored data using parametric and non-parametric estimation methods; compares survival curves for different groups; and discusses competing risk models. The emphasis is on the applications of the different methods with the objective of broadening computational skills in R and/or SAS and to reinforce statistical writing and communication. These skills will be applied to a variety of problems in political science, public health, engineering, and medicine.
