On July 28-August 1 in Philadelphia, Dr. Paul D. Allison will teach a 5-day
seminar on Event History and Survival Analysis Using Stata.
This seminar covers material equivalent to a full semester’s work.
Topics include censoring, Kaplan-Meier estimation, parametric regression
models, Cox regression, time-dependent covariates, competing risks,
discrete-time analysis, heterogeneity, stratification, and repeated events.
No previous knowledge of survival analysis is required, although
participants should have a good working knowledge of basic principles of
statistical inference and linear regression.
Stata will be used for all examples and assignments. Stata commands include
ltable, stset, sts list, sts graph, sts
test, streg, stcox, stcurve, and cloglog.
Computers will be on site for hands-on assignments and practice.
The course will be held at Temple University Center City, which is located
just across from the Philadelphia City Hall. The fee of $1,300 includes all
course materials. A block of rooms has been reserved at a reduced rate at
the Crowne Plaza Hotel, a 5-minute walk from the course location.
