Introducing Survival and Event History Analysis Press Reviews

This book is very useful for researchers and students in different scientific areas - social sciences and humanities, medicine, in general every science where studies measuring time changes in variables are conducted...As the author explains, this book is written from the perspective of an absolute beginner - comprehensible and with a lot of examples in the text, tables and graphs. It goes beyond an introductory textbook on this topic, because it presents not only non-parametric models, semi-parametric models, parametric models, model-building and model diagnostics, but it is focused also on some more recent techniques like frailty and recurrent event history models, discrete-time models, multistate models, competing risk analysis and sequence analysis...Everyone who would like to start with Survival and Event History analysis or to get more knowledge of Survival and Event History analysis could do this by reading this book Stanislava Yordanova Stoyanova Methodspace
