basdat: HIV: TB and Survival (Baseline Data)

Description Usage Format Details Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

Simulated dataset. Baseline data of 386 HIV positive individuals, including time of first active tuberculosis, time of death, individual end time. Time varying CD4 measurements of these patients are included in dataset timedat.

Usage

1

Format

A data frame with 386 observations on the following 4 variables.

id

patient ID.

Ttb

time of first active tuberculosis, measured in days since HIV seroconversion.

Tdeath

time of death, measured in days since HIV seroconversion.

Tend

individual end time (either death or censoring), measured in days since HIV seroconversion.

Details

These simulated data are used together with data in timedat in a detailed causal modelling example using inverse probability weighting (IPW). See ipwtm for the example. Data were simulated using the algorithm described in Van der Wal e.a. (2009).
