Since its introduction in 1972, the Cox proportional hazards model has become the workhorse model for the analysis of censored survival data. This course is based on topics around the Cox proportional hazards model. Depending on the level of background knowledge of the student, the course may begin with introductory topics and then consider more advanced topics such as time dependent variables, dropout, errors in variables, dependence and robustness. An indication of the level of the course is given by the text Therneau and Grambsch (2000, Modelling Survival Data).
Suitable for students who have completed STAT2001.
