Survival Analysis

Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews key concepts of survival analysis, two descriptive methods (i.e., the life-table approach and the Kaplan–Meier estimate of survivor function), and graphic approaches. These methods are typically employed at the beginning stage of a quantitative inquiry of time-to-event data, although almost all concepts described in the chapter are important in understanding the entire survival analysis method.

Keywords:   survival analysis, life-table approach, quantitative enquiry, time-to-event data
