Engaging, easy to read, functional and packed with enlightening examples, 'hands-on' exercises and resources for both students and instructors, Introducing Survival Analysis and Event History Analysis allows researchers to quickly master these advanced statistical techniques. This book is written from the perspective of the 'user', making it suitable as both a self-learning tool and graduate-level textbook.

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 bookStanislava Yordanova Stoyanova Methodspace
