Description

The function to simulate independent/cluster-correlated right-censored survival data under Weibull/Weibull-Normal model.

Usage

1
simSurv(cluster=NULL, x, beta.true, alpha.true, kappa.true, sigmaV.true=NULL, cens)

Arguments

cluster

a vector of cluster information for n subjects. The cluster membership must be set to consecutive positive integers, 1:J. Required only when generating clustered data.

x

covariate matrix, n observations by p variables.

beta.true

true value for β.

alpha.true

true value for α.

kappa.true

true value for κ.

sigmaV.true

true value for σ_V. Required only when generating clustered data.

cens

a vector with two numeric elements. The right censoring times are generated from Uniform(cens[1], cens[2]).

Value

simSurv returns a data.frame containing univariate time-to-event outcomes from n subjects. It is of dimension n\times 2: the columns correspond to y, δ.

y

a vector of n times to the event

delta

a vector of n censoring indicators for the event time (1=event occurred, 0=censored)
