What are Hazard Ratios?
A hazard ratio (HR) is the probability of an event in a treatment group relative to the control group probability over a unit of time. This ratio is an effect size measure for time-to-event data. Use hazard ratios to estimate the treatment effect in clinical trials when you want to assess time-to-event.
For example, HRs can determine whether a medical treatment reduces the duration of symptoms or prolongs survival in cancer patients. [Read more…] about Hazard Ratio: Interpretation & Definition
