relhaz: Example of a simulation study on survival modelling

Description Usage Format References Examples


A dataset from a simulation study assessing the impact of misspecifying the baseline hazard in survival models on regression coefficients. One thousand datasets were simulated, each containing a binary treatment variable with a log-hazard ratio of -0.50. Survival data was simulated for two different sample sizes, 50 and 250 individuals, and under two different baseline hazard functions, exponential and Weibull. Consequently, a Cox model (Cox, 1972), a fully parametric exponential model, and a Royston-Parmar (Royston and Parmar, 2002) model with two degrees of freedom were fit to each simulated dataset.
