Description - Survival and Event History Analysis by Niels Keiding

A unique and invaluable reference resource for those working in survival analysis. Survival analysis is concerned with studying the time between entry to a study and a subsequent event. Originally the analysis was concerned with time from treatment until death, hence the name, but survival analysis is applicable to many areas in addition to mortality, such as recidivism or the efficacy of drugs. The techniques can also be used in engineering and quality control (e.g. how long is a particular component likely to last?). Arranged in an A-Z format, Survival and Event History Analysis edited by Niels Keiding and Per Kragh Andersen contains 96 articles written by over 60 distinguished authors. The articles are taken from the Encyclopedia of Biostatistics, 2nd Edition. This book gives the reader a thorough grounding in the subject area and the extensive references at the end of each article provide a comprehensive source of information for further information in more depth.
