Description

Pareto QQ-plot adapted for right censored data.

Usage

1
cParetoQQ(data, censored, plot = TRUE, main = "Pareto QQ-plot", ...)

Arguments

data

Vector of n observations.

censored

A logical vector of length n indicating if an observation is censored.

plot

Logical indicating if the quantiles should be plotted in a Pareto QQ-plot, default is TRUE.

main

Title for the plot, default is "Pareto QQ-plot".

...

Additional arguments for the plot function, see plot for more details.

Details

The Pareto QQ-plot adapted for right censoring is given by

( -\log(1-F_{km}(Z_{j,n})), \log Z_{j,n} )

for j=1,…,n-1, with Z_{i,n} the i-th order statistic of the data and F_{km} the Kaplan-Meier estimator for the CDF. Hence, it has the same empirical quantiles as an ordinary Pareto QQ-plot but replaces the theoretical quantiles -\log(1-j/(n+1)) by -\log(1-F_{km}(Z_{j,n})).

This QQ-plot is only suitable for right censored data, use icParetoQQ for interval censored data.

Value

A list with following components:

pqq.the

Vector of the theoretical quantiles, see Details.

pqq.emp

Vector of the empirical quantiles from the log-transformed data.
