This course aims to introduce participants to the theory and concept of survival analysis and provides strategies to decide for which research questions this method has benefits over alternative approaches. The course will further cover the preparation of datasets, discuss some common pitfalls and train the participants in interpretation of statistical and graphical results. The practical exercises should enable the participants to set up data and conduct analysis on their own. During the exercise, we use the software package STATA.
This course is designed for people who are familiar with the Stata software and want to use it for analysing survival/event history data.
On completion of the course, participants will have the necessary familiarity with the survival analysis method and the data manipulation skills required to move on to their own projects. The emphasis on the theoretical background and survival analysis technique will enable the participants to extrapolate their gained knowledge to any software and research topic. We use Stata as a programming tool, but students will be able to extrapolate course content to other programming software.
No previous knowledge of survival analysis is required, as this course will introduce the participants to the statistical method. All method-related programming will be explained during the course. Therefore, the familiarity of the Stata environment, basic command files and manipulation are essential in order to get the most out of this course, especially the practical exercises.
