about

This greatly expanded second edition of Survival Analysis- A Self-learning Text provides a highly readable description of state-of-the-art methods of analysis of survival/event-history data. This text is suitable for researchers and statisticians working in the medical and other life sciences as well as statisticians in academia who teach introductory and second-level courses on survival analysis. The second edition continues to use the unique "lecture-book" format of the first (1996) edition with the addition of three new chapters on advanced topics:Chapter 7: Parametric ModelsChapter 8: Recurrent eventsChapter 9: Competing Risks. Also, the Computer Appendix has been revised to provide step-by-step instructions for using the computer packages STATA (Version 7.0), SAS (Version 8.2), and SPSS (version 11.5) to carry out the procedures presented in the main text. The original six chapters have been modified slightly to expand and clarify aspects of survival analysis in response to suggestions by students, colleagues and reviewers, and to add theoretical background, particularly regarding the formulation of the (partial) likelihood functions for proportional hazards, stratified, and extended Cox regression models David Kleinbaum is Professor of Epidemiology at the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia. Dr. Kleinbaum is internationally known for innovative textbooks and teaching on epidemiological methods, multiple linear regression, logistic regression, and survival analysis. He has provided extensive worldwide short-course training in over 150 short courses on statistical and epidemiological methods. He is also the author of ActivEpi (2002), an interactive computer-based instructional text on fundamentals of epidemiology, which has been used in a variety of educational environments including distance learning. Mitchel Klein is Research Assistant Professor with a joint appointment in the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health (EOH) and the Department of Epidemiology, also at the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University. Dr. Klein is also co-author with Dr. Kleinbaum of the second edition of Logistic Regression- A Self-Learning Text (2002). He has regularly taught epidemiologic methods courses at Emory to graduate students in public health and in clinical medicine. He is responsible for the epidemiologic methods training of physicians enrolled in Emory's Master of Science in Clinical Research Program, and has collaborated with Dr. Kleinbaum both nationally and internationally in teaching several short courses on various topics in epidemiologic methods.

Editorial Reviews

"Imagine---a statistics textbook that actually explains things in English instead of explaining a topic by bombarding the reader with page-width equations requiring an advanced degree in Math just to read the book. If it weren't for this book, I would be really stuck." (David Britz)From the reviews of the second edition:"The most meaningful accolade that I can give to this text is that it admirably lives up to its title." Journal of the American Statistical Association, September 2006"This text is . an elementary introduction to survival analysis. It is primarily intended for self-study, but it has also proven useful as a basic text in a standard classroom course . . Each chapter starts with an Introduction, an Abbreviated outline, and Objectives, and ends with self tests, exercises and a detailed outline. Solutions to tests and exercises are also provided." (Göran Broström, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1093 (19), 2006)
