Course Description

Do patients taking the new drug survive longer than others? How fast do people get a new job after getting unemployed? What can I do to make my friends stay on the dancefloor at my party? All these questions require the analysis of time-to-event data, for which we use special statistical methods. This course introduces basic concepts of time-to-event data analysis, also called survival analysis. Learn how to deal with time-to-event data and how to compute, visualize and interpret survivor curves as well as Weibull and Cox models.

    What is Survival Analysis?

    Free

    In the first chapter, we introduce the concept of survival analysis, explain the importance of this topic, and provide a quick introduction to the theory behind survival curves. We discuss why special methods are needed when dealing with time-to-event data and introduce the concept of censoring. We also discuss how we describe the distribution of the elapsed time until an event.

    This was a fantastic course to learn a package that is capable of producing great analyses typically applicable in the medical sciences.

  • Edwin A.

    Through this course I have learned to work with time-to-event data, to estimate using Kaplan-Meier estimate, visualize and interpret survival models, such as Weibull and Cox model.

    The course was a good introduction to survival analysis. The best part of DataCamp courses is that you get to use the code and try the analysis in the finely built exercises.
