The objective of the present study is to perform parametric survival analysis to compare the survivorship of prostate cancer patients by race. In our analysis, we will compare the survival times between White and African American men under similar treatment in the four different stages of prostate cancer. In addition, we perform survival probability residual analysis to evaluate the average difference in survivorship between White and African American men.
