predict.TransModel: Predict survival probabilities with confidence intervals and...

Description Usage Arguments Value Note Examples

View source: R/predict.TransModel.R

Description

Calculate survival probabilities, confidence intervals and confidence bands in the estimated transformation model. If new time points is not specified, event times in the original data set will be used. If no new covariate values are specified, zeros will be used and the baseline survival probabilities will be calculated.

## S3 method for class 'TransModel'
predict(object, ...)

Arguments

object

An object returned from the function TransModel.

...

Other arguments including:

newdata: a vector containing the values for each covariate variables specified in the model. If not specified, 0 will be used for all variables.

new.time: vector of ordered time points to be used for survival probability calculation. If null, distinct event time points in the original dataset will be used.

alpha: used to determine the confidence level of the predicted confidence interval/band for the survival curve. The default value is 0.05, corresponding to a 95% confidence level.

Value

time

ordered time points on which survival probabilities are calculated.

survival

predicted survival probabilities.

low.ci

the lower limit of confidence interval.

up.ci

the upper limit of confidence interval.

low.cb

the lower limit of confidence band.

up.cb

the upper limit of confidence band.

Note

The values low.ci, up.ci, low.cb and up.cb will be returned only if CICB.st=TRUE in the original model.
