 SpliceTB R Documentation

## Plot of fitted and Turnbull survival function

### Description

This function plots the fitted survival function of the spliced distribution together with the Turnbull survival function (which is suitable for interval censored data). Moreover, 100(1-\alpha)\% confidence intervals are added.

### Usage

SpliceTB(x = sort(L), L, U = L, censored, splicefit, alpha = 0.05, ...)


### Arguments

 x Vector of points to plot the functions at. By default we plot it at the points L. L Vector of length n with the lower boundaries of the intervals for interval censored data or the observed data for right censored data. U Vector of length n with the upper boundaries of the intervals. By default, they are equal to L. censored A logical vector of length n indicating if an observation is censored. splicefit A SpliceFit object, e.g. output from SpliceFiticPareto. alpha 100(1-\alpha)\% is the confidence level for the confidence intervals. Default is \alpha=0.05. ... Additional arguments for the plot function, see plot for more details.

### Details

Right censored data should be entered as L=l and U=truncupper, and left censored data should be entered as L=trunclower and U=u. The limits trunclower and truncupper are obtained from the SpliceFit object.

Use SpliceECDF for non-censored data.

See Reynkens et al. (2017) and Section 4.3.2 in Albrecher et al. (2017) for more details.
