Introduction to Survival Analysis Procedures

Overview

Data that measure lifetime or the length of time until the occurrence of an event are called lifetime, failure time, or survival data. For example, variables of interest might be the lifetime of diesel engines, the length of time a person stayed on a job, or the survival time for heart transplant patients. Such data have special considerations that must be incorporated into any analysis.
