Hello Stata users,

I have a quick question about survival analysis.  Would it be OK to run various survival analysis methods (KM, cox reg, etc) for only uncensored observations?  In my data, all samples experienced a target event during the observation period.

If it is inappropriate to use techniques of survival analysis in such data, would it be OK to analyze the data with regular regression models (OLS, poisson, etc) with the time till experiencing the target event as a dependent variable?

Thank you,

George
