- We can order this
Survival Analysis with Interval-Censored Data: A Practical Approach with Examples in R, SAS, and BUGS provides the reader with a practical introduction into the analysis of interval-censored survival times. Although many theoretical developments have appeared in the last fifty years, interval censoring is often ignored in practice. Many are unaware of the impact of inappropriately dealing with interval censoring. In addition, the necessary software is at times difficult to trace. This book fills in the gap between theory and practice.
-Provides an overview of frequentist as well as Bayesian methods.
-Include a focus on practical aspects and applications.
-Extensively illustrates the methods with examples using R, SAS, and BUGS. Full programs are available on a supplementary website.
