Drawing on recent 'event history' analytical methods from biostatistics, engineering, and sociology, this book explains how longitudinal data can be used to study the causes of deaths, crimes, wars, and many other 'people' events. The author provides clear and concise explanations, without using overtly technical or mathematical language.
