A Gentle Introduction to Survival Analysis

When we are interested in the length of time until an event first occurs, we might not be able to observe the individuals for long enough to see them all have the event. This phenomenon, known as censoring, can be handled using survival analysis methods. In this seminar, I will introduce the basic concepts and methods used in survival analysis, and give examples of some of its many extensions for dealing with more complicated scenarios.

The talk will be about 30 minutes long and follow by discussion.
