Cox, in 1972, came up with the Cox Regression Model to deal handle failure time data. This work presents background information leading up to the Cox's regression model for censored survival data. The marginal and partial likelihood approaches to estimate the parameters in this model are presented in detail. The estimation techniques of the hazard and survivor functions are explained. All of these ideas are illustrated using data from the Veteran’s Administration lung cancer study.
