plot.survfit.stanjm: Plot the estimated subject-specific or marginal survival...

Description Usage Arguments Value See Also Examples

View source: R/posterior_survfit.R

Description

This generic plot method for survfit.stanjm objects will plot the estimated subject-specific or marginal survival function using the data frame returned by a call to posterior_survfit. The call to posterior_survfit should ideally have included an "extrapolation" of the survival function, obtained by setting the extrapolate argument to TRUE.

The plot_stack_jm function takes arguments containing the plots of the estimated subject-specific longitudinal trajectory (or trajectories if a multivariate joint model was estimated) and the plot of the estimated subject-specific survival function and combines them into a single figure. This is most easily understood by running the Examples below.

## S3 method for class 'survfit.stanjm'
plot(
  x,

  xlab = NULL,
  ylab = NULL,
  facet_scales = "free",
  ci_geom_args = NULL,

)

plot_stack_jm(yplot, survplot)

Arguments

x

A data frame and object of class survfit.stanjm returned by a call to the function posterior_survfit. The object contains point estimates and uncertainty interval limits for estimated values of the survival function.

ids

An optional vector providing a subset of subject IDs for whom the predicted curves should be plotted.

limits

A quoted character string specifying the type of limits to include in the plot. Can be one of: "ci" for the Bayesian posterior uncertainty interval for the estimated survival probability (often known as a credible interval); or "none" for no interval limits.

xlab, ylab

An optional axis label passed to labs.

facet_scales

A character string passed to the scales argument of facet_wrap when plotting the longitudinal trajectory for more than one individual.

ci_geom_args

Optional arguments passed to geom_ribbon and used to control features of the plotted interval limits. They should be supplied as a named list.

...

Optional arguments passed to geom_line and used to control features of the plotted survival function.

yplot

An object of class plot.predict.stanjm, returned by a call to the generic plot method for objects of class predict.stanjm. If there is more than one longitudinal outcome, then a list of such objects can be provided.

survplot

An object of class plot.survfit.stanjm, returned by a call to the generic plot method for objects of class survfit.stanjm.

Value

The plot method returns a ggplot object, also of class plot.survfit.stanjm. This object can be further customised using the ggplot2 package. It can also be passed to the function plot_stack_jm.

plot_stack_jm returns an object of class bayesplot_grid that includes plots of the estimated subject-specific longitudinal trajectories stacked on top of the associated subject-specific survival curve.
