transLIN | R Documentation |

Provides estimates for the transition probabilities based on LIN estimators, LIN.

transLIN(object, s, t, x, bw="dpik", window="normal", method.weights="NW", state.names=c("1", "2", "3"), conf=FALSE, n.boot=1000, conf.level=0.95, method.boot="percentile", ...)

`object` |
An object of class ‘survTP’. |

`s` |
The first time for obtaining estimates for the transition probabilities. If missing, 0 will be used. |

`t` |
The second time for obtaining estimates for the transition probabilities.
If missing, the maximum of |

`x` |
Covariate values for obtaining estimates for the conditional transition probabilities. If missing, unconditioned transition probabilities will be computed. |

`bw` |
A character string indicating a function to compute a kernel density bandwidth. Defaults to “dpik” from package KernSmooth. Alternatively a single numeric value can be specified. |

`window` |
A character string specifying the desired kernel. See details below for possible options. Defaults to “normal” where the gaussian density kernel will be used. |

`method.weights` |
A character string specifying the desired weights method. Possible options are “NW” for the Nadaraya-Watson weights and “LL” for local linear weights. Defaults to “NW”. |

`state.names` |
A vector of characters giving the state names. |

`conf` |
Provides pointwise confidence bands. Defaults to |

`n.boot` |
The number of bootstrap samples. Defaults to 1000 samples. |

`conf.level` |
Level of confidence. Defaults to 0.95 (corresponding to 95%). |

`method.boot` |
The method used to compute bootstrap confidence bands. Possible options are “percentile” and “basic”. Defaults to “percentile”. |

`...` |
Further arguments.
Typically these arguments are passed to the function specified by argument |

If `bw="dpik"`

then possible options for argument `window`

are “normal”, “box”, “epanech”, “biweight” or “triweight”.
When argument `bw`

is numeric then argument `window`

accepts the same options as when `bw="dpik"`

plus one of “tricube”, “triangular” or “cosine”.

If argument `x`

is missing or if argument `object`

doesn't contain a covariate,
an object of class ‘TPmsm’ is returned. There are methods for `contour`

, `image`

, `print`

and `plot`

.
‘TPmsm’ objects are implemented as a list with elements:

`method` |
A string indicating the type of estimator used in the computation. |

`est` |
A matrix with transition probability estimates. The rows being the event times and the columns the 5 possible transitions. |

`inf` |
A matrix with the lower transition probabilities of the confidence band. The rows being the event times and the columns the 5 possible transitions. |

`sup` |
A matrix with the upper transition probabilities of the confidence band. The rows being the event times and the columns the 5 possible transitions. |

`time` |
Vector of times where the transition probabilities are computed. |

`s` |
Start of the time interval. |

`t` |
End of the time interval. |

`h` |
The bandwidth used. If the estimator doesn't require a bandwidth, it's set to |

`state.names` |
A vector of characters giving the states names. |

`n.boot` |
Number of bootstrap samples used in the computation of the confidence band. |

`conf.level` |
Level of confidence used to compute the confidence band. |

If argument `x`

is specified and argument `object`

contains a covariate,
an object of class ‘TPCmsm’ is returned. There are methods for `print`

and `plot`

.
‘TPCmsm’ objects are implemented as a list with elements:

`method` |
A string indicating the type of estimator used in the computation. |

`est` |
A 3 dimensional array with transition probability estimates. The first dimension being the event times, the second the covariate values and the last one the 5 possible transitions. |

`inf` |
A 3 dimensional array with the lower transition probabilities of the confidence band. The first dimension being the event times, the second the covariate values and the last one the 5 possible transitions. |

`sup` |
A 3 dimensional array with the upper transition probabilities of the confidence band. The first dimension being the event times, the second the covariate values and the last one the 5 possible transitions. |

`time` |
Vector of times where the transition probabilities are computed. |

`covariate` |
Vector of covariate values where the conditional transition probabilities are computed. |

`s` |
Start of the time interval. |

`t` |
End of the time interval. |

`x` |
Additional covariate values where the conditional transition probabilities are computed, which may or may not be present in the sample. |

`h` |
The bandwidth used. |

`state.names` |
A vector of characters giving the states names. |

`n.boot` |
Number of bootstrap samples used in the computation of the confidence band. |

`conf.level` |
Level of confidence used to compute the confidence band. |
