Survival Session


Survival sessions can be used to calculate observed survival, net survival, conditional survival, and crude probability of death. A Survival Case Listing may also be generated from a Survival session. If you are interested in other statistics, see Statistics Calculated by SEER*Stat for an overview of statistics which can be calculated in other types of sessions.

  4. Selection tab
  5. Table tab
  6. Parameters Tab
