Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"…an easy-to read introduction to survival analysis which covers the major concepts and techniques of the subject." (Statistics in Medical Research, October 2005)

"The book is well written and provides explicit details of the models and methods used." (Journal of the American Statistical Association, June 2004)

"…contains thorough descriptions and illustrations of several useful nonparametric and parametric statistical methods to analyze survival data." (Journal of Statistical Computation & Simulation, May 2004) 

"...a comprehensive and clearly written textbook...a very good reference..." (Short Book Reviews, Vol 24(1), 2004)

"...continues to be application-oriented with a minimum level of mathematics..." (Zentralblatt Math, Vol 1026, 2004)

"This third edition is a significant upgrade...this remains an excellent choice or a basic textbook in survival analysis..." (Technometrics, Vol. 45, No. 4, November 2003)

Defined in a broad sense, survival data refers to data that involve the remaining time until a certain event such as a death, a relapse, or the onset of a disease. Analysis of such data is applicable in such fields as criminology, sociology, marketing, and health insurance, as well as biomedical and reliability research. The many methodologies are presented here. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
