Survival Analysis Using the SAS System: A Practical Guide

Book Cover

by Paul D. Allison

Biomedical and social science researchers who want to analyze survival data with the SAS System will find just what they need with this easy-to-read and comprehensive guide. Written for the person with a modest statistical background and minimal knowledge of SAS software, this book teaches many aspects of data input and manipulation. Numerous examples of SAS code and output make this an eminently practical book ensuring that even the uninitiated becomes a sophisticated user of survival analysis. The main topics presented include censoring, survival curves, Kaplan-Meier estimation, accelerated failure time models, Cox regression models, and discrete-time analysis. Also included are topics not usually covered such as time-dependent covariates, competing risks, and repeated events.
