Cox Regression with Steve Simon

When you have data measuring the time to an event, you can examine the relationship between various predictor variables and the time to the event using a Cox proportional hazards model.

In this webinar, you’ll see what a hazard function is and describe the interpretations of increasing, decreasing, and constant hazard. Then you’ll examine the log rank test, a simple test closely tied to the Kaplan-Meier curve, and the Cox proportional hazards model.
