Log-rank test

۲۴ K


In statistics, the log-rank test is a hypothesis test to compare the survival distributions of two samples. It is a nonparametric test and appropriate to use when the data are right skewed and censored. It is widely used in clinical trials to establish the efficacy of a new treatment in comparison with a control treatment when the measurement is the time to event. The test is sometimes called the Mantel–Cox test, named after Nathan Mantel and David Cox. The log-rank test can also be viewed as a time-stratified Cochran–Mantel–Haenszel test. The test was first proposed by Nathan Mantel and was named the log-rank test by Richard and Julian Peto. This video is targeted to blind users.
