Computes p-Values for The Comparison of Two Survival Curves at Fixed Points in Time

Share:

Description

This is an internal function and is not usually called by user.
This function computes p-values for the comparison of two survival curves at fixed time points.

Usage

1
pvals.2cat(pest, pval.test)

Arguments

pest

a matrix of point estimates accompanied with confidence intervals at fixed time points

pval.test

a type of a test used for the computation of p-values. Possible values are “naive”, “log”, “loglog”. The default value is “loglog”.

Value

a vector containing p-values for the comparison of the point estimates at fixed time points
