Eva Lelièvre and Arnaud Bringé, respectively researcher and statistician at Ined present this practical guide to event history analysis using SAS®, TDA® and STATA®.
However, rather than simply  assessing the performance of each application, this comparison aims to show potential users the basic programming required to run the same analysis using each of these applications. It explains the content and range of results obtained and compares the various graphs that can be output. The aim is to provide users with a guide that will help them choose the right software according to their constraints and objectives.
As a result, our review focuses on the steps required to carry out the most basic analysis, as well as any intermediate steps, before going on to cover more sophisticated analyses.
This guide offers a well documented and systematic approach to event history analysis.
