Summary and Info
A textbook for an introductory course in statistical methods for analyzing data typically encountered in health related studies that include events involving an element of time. Assumes previous courses in linear and logical regression. Emphasizes practical applications rather than mathematical theory, modeling data, and interpreting results. Also highlights the importance of incomplete or censored data and how that censoring may influence the selection of models and the interpretation of results. Mostly uses examples from STATA, but the methods are fairly ubiquitous among the currently available statistical software packages.
