From Whether to When: New Methods for Studying Student Dropout and Teacher Attrition.
Willett, John B.; Singer, Judith D.
Review of Educational Research, v61 n4 p407-50 Win 1991
This article shows how the methods of survival analysis (also known as event history analysis) lend themselves to the study of the timing of educational events. Using examples from teacher attrition and student dropout research, survival methods are introduced for building statistical models of the risk of event occurrence over time. (Author/SLD)
