Basic Quantities and Models
In this chapter, we consider the basic parameters used in modeling survival data. We shall define these quantities and show how they are interrelated in sections 2.2–2.4. In section 2.5, some common parametric models are discussed. The important application of regression to survival analysis is covered in section 2.6, where both parametric and semiparametric models are presented.
