Survival Analysis Using S: Analysis of Time-to-Event Data is designed as text for a one-semester class in survival analysis for upper-level or graduate students in statistics, biostatistics, and epidemiology. It requires only a first course in probability and statistics as a prerequisite. The authors emphasize parametric models and the advantages of hazard plots over survivor plots. Easy-to-follow S programs are interwoven throughout the book, and a supporting Web site contains S code, S-functions created by the authors, SAS codes, all of the data sets used in the book, and some additional data sets.
