Hare: hazard regression


Plots a density, distribution function, hazard function or survival function for a hare object.


## S3 method for class 'hare'
plot(x, cov, n = 100, which = 0, what = "d", time, add = FALSE, xlim,
xlab, ylab, type, ...) 



hare object, typically the result of hare.


a vector of length fit\$ncov, indicating for which combination of covariates the plot should be made. Can be omitted only if fit\$ncov is 0.


the number of equally spaced points at which to plot the function.


for which coordinate should the plot be made. 0: time; positive value i: covariate i. Note that if which is the positive value i, then the element corresponding to this covariate must be given in cov even though its actual value is irrelevant.


what should be plotted: "d" (density), "p" (distribution function), "s" (survival function) or "h" (hazard function).


if which is not equal to 0, the value of time for which the plot should be made.


should the plot be added to an existing plot?


plotting limits; default is from the maximum of 0 and 10% before the 1st percentile to the minimmum of 10% further than the 99th percentile and the largest observation.


labels for the axes. Per default no labels are printed.


plotting type. The default is lines.


all other plotting options are passed on.


This function produces a plot of a hare fit at n equally spaced points roughly covering the support of the density. (Use xlim=c(from,to) to change the range of these points.)
