CSD Sponsored Workshop on “Longitudinal Methods Using Survival Analysis”, led by Shenyang Guo
Survival analysis is a collection of statistical methods used to address questions that have to do with whether and when an event of interest takes place. It is “the analysis of data that correspond to the time from a well-defined time origin until the occurrence of some particular event or end-point (Collett, 1994).” In this workshop, participants will learn fundamental concepts and skills to conduct survival analysis, and know how to apply these techniques to social, behavioral, and health research. This workshop will discuss censoring mechanisms, descriptive methods for survival data using the Kaplan-Meier method, the discrete-time models, the Cox proportional hazards model, the piecewise exponential model, and multivariate analysis of autocorrelated time-to-event data.
