The terminology and ideas involved in the statistical analysis of survival data are explained including the survival function, the probability density function, the hazard function, censored observations, parametric and nonparametric estimations of these functions, the product limit estimation of the survival function, and the proportional hazards estimation of the hazard function with explanatory variables.
In Appendix A these ideas are applied to the actual analysis of the survival data for 54 cervical cancer patients.
