Event History Analysis (Online)
The University of Edinburgh
Dr Kevin Ralston, Lecturer in Sociology and Quantitative Methods, The University of Edinburgh
Intermediate (some prior knowledge)
Laura Marshall (Usher Communications)
Working Week: Monday - Thursday
This course introduces the analysis and modelling of event history data. Event history analysis (EHA - also known as survival analysis or failure time analysis) is widely used in the social sciences where interest is on analysing time to events such as job changes, marriage, birth of children or time to divorce. The course draws on different data examples to illustrate event history approaches. This includes describing event history data, the semi-parametric Cox proportional hazards model, alternative parametric approaches and the discrete time modelling approach.
The course will use the Stata software in the most recent version available.
Some familiarity with (and access to) Stata. Familiarity with alternative statistical analysis packages that transfer to Stata is also sufficient. Understanding of standard statistical analysis techniques such as OLS regression and/or other GLM models would be beneficial.
