FGR: Formula wrapper for crr from cmprsk

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References See Also Examples

View source: R/FGR.R

Description

Formula interface for Fine-Gray regression competing risk models.

Usage

1
FGR(formula, data, cause = 1, y = TRUE, ...)

Arguments

formula

A formula whose left hand side is a Hist object – see Hist. The right hand side specifies (a linear combination of) the covariates. See examples below.

data

A data.frame in which all the variables of formula can be interpreted.

cause

The failure type of interest. Defaults to 1.

y

logical value: if TRUE, the response vector is returned in component response.

...

...

Details

Formula interface for the function crr from the cmprsk package.

The function crr allows to multiply some covariates by time before they enter the linear predictor. This can be achieved with the formula interface, however, the code becomes a little cumbersome. See the examples.

Value

See crr.

## crr allows that some covariates are multiplied by
## a function of time (see argument tf of crr)
## by FGR uses the identity matrix
f2 <- FGR(Hist(time,cause)~cov2(X1)+X2,data=d)
print(f2)

## same thing, but more explicit:
f3 <- FGR(Hist(time,cause)~cov2(X1)+cov1(X2),data=d)
print(f3)

## both variables can enter cov2:
f4 <- FGR(Hist(time,cause)~cov2(X1)+cov2(X2),data=d)
print(f4)

## change the function of time
qFun <- function(x){x^2}
noFun <- function(x){x}
sqFun <- function(x){x^0.5}

## multiply X1 by time^2 and X2 by time:
f5 <- FGR(Hist(time,cause)~cov2(X1,tf=qFun)+cov2(X2),data=d)
print(f5)
print(f5$crrFit)
## same results as crr
with(d,crr(ftime=time,
           fstatus=cause,
           cov2=d[,c("X1","X2")],
           tf=function(time){cbind(qFun(time),time)}))

## still same result, but more explicit
f5a <- FGR(Hist(time,cause)~cov2(X1,tf=qFun)+cov2(X2,tf=noFun),data=d)
f5a$crrFit

## multiply X1 by time^2 and X2 by sqrt(time)
f5b <- FGR(Hist(time,cause)~cov2(X1,tf=qFun)+cov2(X2,tf=sqFun),data=d,cause=1)

## additional arguments for crr
f6<- FGR(Hist(time,cause)~X1+X2,data=d, cause=1,gtol=1e-5)
f6
f6a<- FGR(Hist(time,cause)~X1+X2,data=d, cause=1,gtol=0.1)
