Survival analysis: modelling time-to-event data

- | 10:15 - 17:00
Location: UCL Economics Department
Tutor: Stephen Jenkins London School of Economics

This course is an introduction to survival analysis, also known as 'event history analysis'. These are the statistical methods used to analyse data on spell lengths of time in a state, e.g. how long a marriage lasts, or the duration of a spell of unemployment. For simplicity, the course focuses on models for a single spell per observation unit, but the course also indicates how analysis is extended to address the issues arising when there are multiple spells per unit or multiple destinations ('competing risks').
