Abstract

The Kaplan Meier procedure is used to analyze data based on the survival
time. This article provides an example on how to use Kaplan Meier and Cox
regression with three objectives. The objectives are finding the percentage of
survival at any time of interest, comparing the survival time of two studied
groups and examining the effect of continuous covariates with the relationship
between an event and possible explanatory variables. The example is discussed
based on the breast cancer survival dataset from Statistical Package for the
Social Sciences (SPSS).
