White-tailed deer and sharp-tailed grouse data used in constrained generalized additive models to enhance survival analyses and incorporate ecological theory

January 19, 2023

Grouse: These data on sharp-tailed grouse survival times are provided for individuals wanting to run an age-period survival analysis. Entry and exit times are expressed in integer days from the start of the study. Entry age and exit age expressed in integer days are also included. Data are structured to implement survival analysis. White-tailed Deer: These data on white-tailed deer survival times are provided for individuals wanting to run an age-period survival analysis. Entry and exit times are expressed in integer weeks from the start of the study. Entry age and exit age expressed in integer weeks are also included. Data are structured to implement survival analysis. Only adult female individuals that were chronic-wasting disease test-negative and capture and mortality were included.
