О курсе

Welcome to Survival Analysis in R for Public Health! The three earlier courses in this series covered statistical thinking, correlation, linear regression and logistic regression. This one will show you how to run survival – or “time to event” – analysis, explaining what’s meant by familiar-sounding but deceptive terms like hazard and censoring, which have specific meanings in this context. Using the popular and completely free software R, you’ll learn how to take a data set from scratch, import it into R, run essential descriptive analyses to get to know the data’s features and quirks, and progress from Kaplan-Meier plots through to multiple Cox regression. You’ll use data simulated from real, messy patient-level data for patients admitted to hospital with heart failure and learn how to explore which factors predict their subsequent mortality. You’ll learn how to test model assumptions and fit to the data and some simple tricks to get round common problems that real public health data have. There will be mini-quizzes on the videos and the R exercises with feedback along the way to check your understanding. Prerequisites Some formulae are given to aid understanding, but this is not one of those courses where you need a mathematics degree to follow it. You will need basic numeracy (for example, we will not use calculus) and familiarity with graphical and tabular ways of presenting results. The three previous courses in the series explained concepts such as hypothesis testing, p values, confidence intervals, correlation and regression and showed how to install R and run basic commands. In this course, we will recap all these core ideas in brief, but if you are unfamiliar with them, then you may prefer to take the first course in particular, Statistical Thinking in Public Health, and perhaps also the second, on linear regression, before embarking on this one....

Great course superb support and very clear professor. This course is a good motivator to continue to explore public health and statistics.

Good and practical introduction to survival analysis. I liked the emphasis on how to deal with practical data sets and data problems.

the use of R in the course was immersive and enjoyable, although the way some assignments were presented was inconsistent at times.

The final quiz is a little bit confusing ,pls provide detailed feedback on it so we can learn further even we did not pass it.

A fantasic intro to learn survival analysis where the time to the outcome is important

It made learning very frustrating in every sense. Grading system has obviously some errors and nobody provides answers on Discussion forum. Final questions are formed in a way that was quite confusing to me and I never had that problem before also in much harder courses. Important things are not well explained including the mathematics behind. These is a lot of space for improving this course to make it better which is a pity because the course has some good moments as well.

This course can be improved by fixing mistakes (especially the ones on quizzes), and instructors need to be more active on the forums and help students with questions.

Got some setting error and not yet be fixed in week 4. The incorrect setting or answer set prevent the student from passing the quiz and proceed the course.

It is a nice course! However, the video transcripts are very problematic. Since I like taking notes from transcripts, it creates some inconvenience for me
