CFD: A Quick Start Guide to Survival Analysis - Katrina Brewsaugh and Eunice Blemahdoo

Thursday October 13th, 2016 2-2:20 PM 

Time is a common element in evaluating program outcomes. How long do participants abstain from smoking after completing a cessation program? How long does it take for trainees to find jobs? How long do children stay in foster care? Survival analysis is a statistical technique that allows evaluators to examine the time to an event as an outcome, rather than just a descriptor. This session will provide an overview of survival analysis theory, data requirements, and presentation of results. 

Learning Objectives: 
1. Identify analytic questions that are appropriate for survival analysis. 
2. Determine if they have the right data in order to perform survival analysis. 
3. Understand how to interpret and present survival analysis output
