113.020.020.50 Survival Analysis - Proportional Hazards PH

# Prorporational Hazards (PH)

Proportional hazards are a class of 113.020.020 Statistics - Survival Analysis in statistics (1). They predict the amount of time before some event occurs, like a patient dying or a customer churning.

113.020.020.50.10 Proportional Hazards - Mathematical desc of Cox PH

## From my Lucky8 notes

- has a hard time fitting to yearly data
- needs a good history of data
- needs a big enough number of new customer adds (small numbers are hard)
- hard when you have a direct sales force model

### Used to predict saturation

This and other diffusion models are used to predict saturation.

### There are other growth models out there

We used PH a lot at Lucky8, but we occasionally used other growth models as well.
