Using the Survival Curve dataset tab located in the Framingham Heart Study dataset,
perform a Cox Proportional Hazards Regression Analysis to determine the survival time (risk of dying) for the Survival Curve data where the patients are divided into treatment groups. Upload the Excel spreadsheet into R Studio or perform the Cox Proportional Hazards Regression Analysis in Excel.
H0 The risk of dying is not related to the patient treatment group. (Null Hypothesis)
H1 The risk of dying is related to the patient treatment group. (Alternative Hypothesis)
Present your findings as a Survival Time chart in a Word document, with a title page, introduction explaining why you would conduct a survival analysis, a discussion where you interpret the meaning of the survival analysis, and a conclusion should be included. Your submission should be 2-3 pages to discuss and display your findings.
Provide support for your statements with in-text citations from a minimum of two scholarly, peer-reviewed articles. One of these sources may be from the class readings, textbook, or lectures, but the others must be external. The Saudi Digital Library is a good place to find these sources and should be your primary resource for conducting research.
