Event History Analysis

July 1991 | 182 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This book provides a systematic introduction to models, methods and applications of event history analysis. Yamaguchi emphasizes 'hands on' information, including the use and misuse of samples, models and covariates in applications, the structural arrangement of input data, the specification of various models in such computer programs as SAS-LOGIST and SPSSX-LOGLINEAR, and the interpretation of parameters estimated from models. The book also explores such significant topics as missing data, hazard rate, Cox's partial likelihood model, survivor function, and discrete-time logit models.
