Abstract: In this talk we will explore techniques for interpreting right-censored time to event data. I will introduce the survival and hazard functions, two methods used to describe the distribution of an event. We will then consider parametric models for estimating these functions, specifically models that use Exponential and Weibull distributions. These parametric models will be compared to the Kaplan-Meier estimator, a nonparametric estimator.
