Event History Analysis

Four Volume Set
Edited by:


© 2011 | 1 656 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Event history analysis is an umbrella term for a set of procedures for time series analysis. Event history models focus on the hazard function, which has to do with the probabilities that an event will occur after any given duration. Duration to the hazard of death was the classic example in medical research, but the hazard may have a positive meaning also, such as duration until the event of adoption of an innovation in diffusion research

Over the last two decades, event history analysis has emerged as a mature analytical tool in the social sciences. This four-volume edited collection, Event History Analysis, consists of a) classic papers that have been key in determining or explicating various subareas of event history analysis, and b) high quality applications that demonstrate the utility of event history analysis, drawn from a wide range of substantive areas.
