Proportional Hazards Regression Summary

Proportional Hazards Regression by John O'Quigley

The place in survival analysis now occupied by proportional hazards models and their generalizations is so large that it is no longer conceivable to offer a course on the subject without devoting at least half of the content to this topic alone. This book focuses on the theory and applications of a very broad class of models - proportional hazards and non-proportional hazards models, the former being viewed as a special case of the latter - which underlie modern survival analysis. Researchers and students alike will find that this text differs from most recent works in that it is mostly concerned with methodological issues rather than the analysis itself.

Proportional Hazards Regression Reviews

From the reviews:

"The book is clearly intended to be student-friendly. Each chapter begins with a section called Summary and a following one called motivation; each chapter ends with some exercises and class projects. ... It is very carefully written, with detailed explanation and discussion everywhere. ... I believe that the book can be thoroughly recommended to the student starting his research in the field and to the practitioner who needs to understand some of the theory." (Martin Crowder, International Statistical Review, Vol. 76 (3), 2008)
