2 1. Time to Event Data Also known as “survival” data •T i : time to an event for person i •E x a m ples ¾ Time from enrollment in study until myocardial infarction ¾ Age at first marriage • What is special about time-to-event data? ¾ T i >0 ¾ We do not observe the actual times for people who do not have the event; we only know that they did not have the event up to some time when follow-up ceased; i.e. T the event up to some time when follow up ceased; i.e. T is greater than some value ¾ Write T+ for greater than T when the value is censored 3 1.1 Typical Clinical Study • Enrollment over calendar time X Event Dropped out Censored Start Enrollment End Enrollment End Follow-up Calendar time 4
