Survival Analysis


Survival data correspond to observations related to lifetime or duration of an individual in a broad sense. In such a situation, lifetimes or durations are not always observed exactly, since some censoring and truncation phenomenon may occur. Appropriate statistical methods have to be developed. This course will focus on these techniques.
