Survival Analysis

A method I rarely had cause to use in my career, but good to know about.  Peter Flom does a good job of explaining.   " ... when the dependent variable is time to an event. In that case, we need survival analysis. ... Survival analysis gets its name from the fact that it is often used to look at how long people will live, and to see what influences that. Do women live longer than men? Do people who take aspirin live longer than those who do not? ... "  Straightforward but nontechnical read.
