Comment from the Stata technical group

Event History and Survival Analysis, Second Edition is a concise yet substantive book that discusses the main techniques currently used for modeling survival analysis. Mathematical formulas have been kept to a minimum throughout the book and mostly relegated to an appendix. Instead, the book focuses on the fundamental concepts; for example, you will find a discussion on the different kinds of censoring and on how to perform sensitivity analysis for the noninformative assumption.

The book starts by discussing models for discrete-time survival analysis. Then it moves on to models for continuous time, first addressing parametric models and then the Cox proportional hazards model. Finally, it discusses more advanced topics such as multiple types of events, which include competing risks and repeated events.

The author guides the readers through these models by explaining different examples from the social sciences. Stata (and SAS) code to reproduce those examples, as well as the datasets used in the book, are available online.

This book constitutes an excellent resource for learning survival analysis, and we also recommend it as a reference for any researcher who works with event history data.
