This text is suitable for researchers and statisticians working in the medical and other life sciences as well as statisticians in academia who teach introductory and second-level courses on survival analysis. Kleinbaum is internationally known for innovative textbooks and teaching on epidemiological methods, multiple linear regression, logistic regression, and survival analysis. He has provided extensive worldwide short-course training in over short courses on statistical and epidemiological methods. He is also the author of ActivEpi , an interactive computer-based instructional text on fundamentals of epidemiology, which has been used in a variety of educational environments including distance learning. Klein is also co-author with Dr.

This format allows you to read the script in conjunction with the illustrations and formulae that high- light the main points, formulae, or examples being presented. The new chapter is Chapter 10, Design Issues for Randomized Trials, which considers how to compute sample size when designing a randomized trial involving time-to-event data.
We have expanded Chapter 1 to clarify the distinction between random, independent and non-informative censoring assumptions often made about survival data. We also added a section in Chapter 1 that introduces the Counting Process data layout that is discussed in later chapters 3, 6, and 8.
We added sections in Chapter 2 to describe how to obtain confidence intervals for the Kaplan-Meier KM curve and the median survival time obtained from a KM curve. We have expanded Chapter 3 on the Cox Proportional Hazards PH Model by describing the use of age as the time scale instead of time-on-follow-up as the outcome variable.
We also added a section that clarifies how to obtain confidence intervals for PH models that contain product terms that reflect effect modification of exposure variables of interest. We expanded this Appendix to include the free internet-based computer software package call R. The application of these computer packages to survival data is described in separate self-contained sections of the Computer Appendix, with the analysis of the same datasets illustrated in each section.
In addition to the above new material, the original nine chapters have been modified slightly to correct for errata in the second edition and to add or modify exercises provided at the end of some chapters. This is the third edition of this text on survival analysis, originally published in David G.
Springer Publishers New York, Inc. In the Computer Appendix of the text pages , computer programs for carrying out a survival analysis are described. Below are listed the "addicts" and "bladder cancer" datasets that are utilized in the appendix plus other datasets that have been used as examples and exercises throughout the text.
The PC user should download any or all of these data sets by right clicking on a given dataset and following your computer's instruction for saving the data-file to your computer. There are four types of datasets: 1 Stata datasets with a.
Survival Analysis : A Self-Learning Text, Third Edition
David G. Kleinbaum , Mitchel Klein. This text is suitable for researchers and statisticians working in the medical and other life sciences as well as statisticians in academia who teach introductory and second-level courses on survival analysis. The second edition continues to use the unique "lecture-book" format of the first edition with the addition of three new chapters on advanced topics: Chapter 7: Parametric Models Chapter 8: Recurrent events Chapter 9: Competing Risks. The original six chapters have been modified slightly to expand and clarify aspects of survival analysis in response to suggestions by students, colleagues and reviewers, and to add theoretical background, particularly regarding the formulation of the partial likelihood functions for proportional hazards, stratified, and extended Cox regression models David Kleinbaum is Professor of Epidemiology at the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia.
