Survival analysis is analyzing data to observe the time until the occurrence of a certain event. For example, in clinical trials, we can use survival analysis to analyze whether individuals on the new drug survived longer than individuals on a placebo. Furthermore, this has relevance to real data situations in which physicians or scientists have data where it is desired to have observed an event twice before determining that something meaningful has occurred. Therefore, we created a new method for data wherein an “event” will be defined as the occurrence of two consecutive events.
