SurvRegCensCov-package: Weibull Regression for a Right-Censored Endpoint with...

Description Details Author(s) References Examples

Description

The main function SurvRegCens of this package allows estimation of a Weibull Regression for a right-censored endpoint, one interval-censored covariate, and an arbitrary number of non-censored covariates. Additional functions allow to switch between different parametrizations of Weibull regression used by different R functions (ConvertWeibull, WeibullReg, WeibullDiag), inference for the mean difference of two arbitrarily censored Normal samples (NormalMeanDiffCens), and estimation of canonical parameters from censored samples for several distributional assumptions (ParamSampleCens).
