About the research
How long will a patient live after his or her cancer diagnosis? And how long will a marriage between a new couple last? To make predictions of this so-called 'survival time', the time until an event occurs, researchers use statistical methods to analyze lifetime data. But what if you have an incomplete dataset, because, for example, a cancer patient withdraws before the end of a study? Can you still make accurate predictions? That's what Worku Ewnetu (UHasselt - KU Leuven) is working on. Watch the video to find out more.
