Description

ptwiseELtest gives pointwise EL statistic values at uncensored time span. The pointwise statistic considers only the decision on each single time point; thus, it is different from the integral type and sup type statistics.

ptwiseELtest(data, g1 = 1, t1 = 0, t2 = Inf, sided = 2,
  nboot = 1000, alpha = 0.05, compo = FALSE, seed = 1011,
  nlimit = 200)

Arguments

data

a data frame/matrix with 3 columns. The first column is the survival time. The second is the censoring indicator. The last is the grouping variable. An example as the input to data provided is hepatitis.

g1

the group with longer survival in one-sided testing with the default value of 1.

t1

pre-specified t_1 based on domain knowledge with the default value of 0

t2

pre-specified t_2 based on domain knowledge with the default value of

sided

2 if two-sided test, and 1 if one-sided test. It assumes the default value of 2.

nboot

number of bootstrap replications in calculating critical values with the defualt value of 1000.

alpha

pre-specified significance level of the test with the default value of 0.05

compo

FALSE if taking the standardized square of the difference as the local statisic for two-sided testing, and TRUE if constructing for one-sided testing, but only the positive part of the difference included. It assumes the default value of FALSE.

seed

the parameter with the default value of 1011 to set.seed for generating bootstrap-based critical values in R. The set.seed is used implicitly in intELtest.

nlimit

the splitting unit with the default value of 200. To deal with large data problems, the bootstrap algorithm is to split the number of bootstrap replicates into nsplit parts. The number nsplit is the smallest integer not less than ≤ft\| U\right\|/nlimit.

Value

ptwiseELtest returns a list with four elements:

## It produces the estimates on 44 distinct uncensored days
## out of 57 possibly repeated uncensored days.

ptwiseELtest(hepatitis, t1 = 30, t2 = 60)
## It produces the estimates on 12 distinct uncensored days
## on the restricted time interval [30, 60].
