Estimating the Survival Function
We introduce the survival function, a core component in survival analysis, and the non-parametric estimate for it: the Kaplan-Meier curve. We explore these concepts on FBI's Most Wanted List and ask questions like: how long does it take for a fugitive to be captured?
- Why the survival function is so important in survival analysis.
- How the Kaplan Meier estimator works, intuitivly.
- Using lifelines to compute the estimate and visualize the estimated survival function.
