Modelling Survival Data

This chapter discusses statistical methods for parametric univariate survival

models. The presentation is limited to methods that are relevant for the sub-

sequent chapters on multi-state survival models. The reader who wants to

know more about the univariate survival model is referred to textbooks on

this topic such as Cox and Oakes (1984), Kalbfleisch and Prentice (2002),

Collett (2003), and Aalen et al. (2008).
