Comment from the Stata technical group

Event History Analysis with Stata, by Hans-Peter Blossfeld, Katrin Golsch, and Götz Rohwer, presents survival analysis from a social science perspective. Introducing the mathematics and statistics of survival analysis, along with substantive discussions of social science data issues, the authors give examples throughout using Stata (version 15) and data from the German Life History Study. The text covers both basic and advanced topics, from an introduction to life tables to fitting parametric models with unobserved heterogeneity. The authors aptly illustrate the entire research path required in applying event history analysis, from the initial problems of recording event-oriented data to data organization, software applications, and interpreting results.

After a substantive discussion of event history data, the authors explain, throughout the book, the theory and application of nonparametric methods, parametric regression, and finally the Cox model. The chapters on parametric analysis contain an instructive and detailed discussion on time-dependent covariates and practical situations where these might be present.

The book provides a link to the authors' site, where readers can find the dataset and the code used in the examples. New in this edition is an Appendix that will allow readers to consolidate the concepts just learned by applying them in practical exercises using data from the German National Educational Panel Study.

Event History Analysis with Stata is aimed at the professional social scientist but could also serve as a graduate-level text.
