Some of the data included might be seen as a little unusual in the context, but the methodology of survival analysis extends to a wider field. Also, more prominence is given here to discrete time than is often the case. There are many excellent books in this area nowadays. In particular, I have learnt much fromLawless (2003), Kalbfleisch and Prentice (2002) and Cox and Oakes (1984). More specialised works, such as Cook and Lawless (2007, for Au: Add to recurrent events), Collett (2003, for medical applications), andWolstenholme refs"– Read more…
