Population-based cancer survival analysis, 3-7 May, 2004. School of Public Health, University of Tampere, Finland.
Course notes and supporting material will be distributed on the first day of the course. Anyone interested in preparatory reading can download the course notes and data files in the ZIP archive tampere2004.zip (12Gb).
The ZIP archive should be extracted to C:\ while maintaining the directory structure. That is, the main course directory is c:\data\tampere2004\.
The course notes and reading are in the NOTES directory - I would recommend the lecture notes (lectures8.pdf), the draft chapters of my book (book_draft.pdf) and for those of you already familiar with the analysis of relative survival, the article "Regression Models for Relative Survival.pdf
