This monograph contains many ideas on the analysis of survival data to present a comprehensive account of the field. The value of survival analysis is not confined to medical statistics, where the benefit of the analysis of data on such factors as life expectancy and duration of periods of freedom from symptoms of a disease as related to a treatment applied individual histories and so on, is obvious. The techniques also find important applications in industrial life testing and a range of subjects from physics to econometrics. In the eleven chapters of the book the methods and applications of are discussed and illustrated by examples.


"One of those books that any applied statistician who encounters problems involving the analysis of survival data - whether medical statistics or industrial life-testing - will want to have. It is very well written by two eminently qualified individuals. The book has been kept quite short by eliminating many of the mathematical details and proofs..I n summary, this is a good book."
