survCIs: Confidence/Credible intervals for survival curves In icenReg: Regression Models for Interval Censored Data

Description

Confidence/Credible intervals for survival curves

Usage

 ```1 2``` ```survCIs(fit, newdata = NULL, p = NULL, q = NULL, ci_level = 0.95, MC_samps = 4000) ```

Arguments

 `fit` Fitted model from `ic_par` or `ic_bayes` `newdata` `data.frame` containing covariates for survival curves `p` Percentiles of distribution to sample `q` Times of disitribution to sample. Only p OR q should be specified, not p AND q `ci_level` Confidence/credible level `MC_samps` Number of Monte Carlo samples taken

Details

Creates a set of confidence intervals for the survival curves conditional on the covariates provided in `newdata`. Several rows can be provided in newdata; this will lead to several sets of confidence/credible intervals.

For Bayesian models, these are draws directly from the posterior; a set of parameters drawn from those saved in `fit\$samples` repeatedly and then for each set of parameters, the given set of quantiles is calculated. For parametric models, the procedure is virtually the same, but rather than randomly drawing rows from saved samples, random samples are drawn using the asymptotic normal approximation of the estimator.

This function is not compatible with `ic_np` or `ic_sp` objects, as the distribution of the baseline distribution of these estimators is still an open question.

Examples

 ``` 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16``` ```data("IR_diabetes") fit <- ic_par(cbind(left, right) ~ gender, data = IR_diabetes) # Getting confidence intervals for survival curves # for males and females newdata <- data.frame(gender = c("male", "female")) rownames(newdata) <- c("Males", "Females") diab_cis <- survCIs(fit, newdata) diab_cis # Can add this to any plot plot(fit, newdata = newdata, cis = FALSE) # Would have been included by default lines(diab_cis, col = c("black", "red")) ```
