Description

This function calculates the probability that an individual has the event of interest before t0 + tau given the event has not yet occurred and the individual is still at risk at time t0; this estimated probability does not incorporate any information about the covariate or short term event information.

Usage

1
Prob.Null(t0, tau, data, weight = NULL, newdata=NULL)

Arguments

t0

the landmark time.

tau

the residual survival time for which probabilities are calculated. Specifically, this function estimates the probability that the an individual has the event of interest before t0 + tau given the event has not yet occurred and the individual is still at risk at time t0.

data

n by k matrix, where k >=2. A data matrix where the first column is XL = min(TL, C) where TL is the time of the long term event, C is the censoring time, and the second column is DL =1*(TL<C). These are the data used to calculate the estimated probability.

weight

an optional weight to be incorporated in all estimation.

newdata

an optional n by k matrix, where k >=2. A data matrix where the first column is XL = min(TL, C) where TL is the time of the long term event, C is the censoring time, and the second column is DL =1*(TL<C). Predicted probabilities are estimated for these data.

Value

Prob

Estimated probability that the an individual has the event of interest before t0 + tau given the event has not yet occurred and the individual is still at risk at time t0; this estimated probability does not incorporate any information about the covariate or short term event information.

data

the data matrix with an additional column with the estimated individual probabilities; note that the predicted probability is NA if TL <t0 since it is only defined for individuals with TL> t0

newdata

the newdata matrix with an additional column with the estimated individual probabilities; note that the predicted probability is NA if TL <t0 since it is only defined for individuals with TL> t0; if newdata is not supplied then this returns NULL
