An Introduction to Survival Analysis Using Stata, Second Edition provides new researchers with the foundation for understanding the various approaches for analyzing time-to-event data. This book serves not only as a tutorial for those wishing to learn survival analysis but as a valuable reference for experienced researchers interested in using Stata to analyze survival data. The book is written for professional researchers from all disciplines, including biostatistics, epidemiology, public health, medicine, sociology, economics, political science, engineering, and other fields where survival analysis is applicable. Although the book assumes knowledge of statistical principles, basic probability, and a working knowledge of Stata, it is practical rather than mathematical in its approach to the subject. The reader of this book should come away not just with an understanding of the formulas but with an intuition of how the various survival analysis estimators work and what information they exploit. The reader will also come away with a deeper and more comprehensive knowledge of the syntax, features, and underpinnings of Stata's survival analysis routines. The second edition has been updated to highlight the new features of Stata 10, in particular, power and sample-size calculations for survival data. Among the other additions are in-graph at-risk tables for Kaplan-Meier and related curves, survival analysis for survey data, and regression models with flexible functional forms via fractional polynomials. The authors are also the authors of Stata statistical software, in particular, Stata's widely used survival analysis suite.
