View source: R/logrnk.R

Description

This function performs a Chi-square test on the long and short subject sets to determine if their is a significant difference between the survival times in both sets. It returns the p-value.

Usage

1
logrnk(dataL, dataS)

Arguments

dataL

The set of subjects predicted to fall into the long-survivor set. A data frame containing at least the following columns: “PatientOrderValidation” (the number/order of the subject); “group” (the group into which the patient falls L (for long) or S(for short)); “censored” (the censorship status of the patient $1$ for uncensored and $0$ for censored).

dataS

Same as “dataL” but for the set of short survivors.

Details

Note that the typical arguments to be passed are the results of the “STpredict” functions “long\_survivors” and “long\_survivors”

Value

The estimated p-value is returned
