Survival Data Mining: A Programming Approach

GK# 2821


Course Overview


This advanced course covers predictive hazard modeling for customer history data. Designed for data analysts, the course uses SAS/STAT software to illustrate various survival data mining methods and their practical implementation.

Note: Formerly titled "Survival Data Mining: Predictive Hazard Modeling for Customer History Data," this course now includes hands-on exercises so that you can practice the techniques that you learn. Other additions include a chapter on recurrent events, new features in SAS/STAT software, and an expanded section that compares discrete time approach versus the continuous time models such as Cox Proportional Hazards models and fully parametric models such as Weibull.
