Arguments

object

an stpm2 or pstpm2 object

newdata

optional list of new data (required if type in ("hr","sdiff","hdiff","meansurvdiff","or","uncured")). For type in ("hr","sdiff","hdiff","meansurvdiff","or","af","uncured"), this defines the unexposed newdata. This can be combined with grid to get a regular set of event times (i.e. newdata would not include the event times).

type

specify the type of prediction:

  • "surv"survival probabilities

  • "cumhaz"cumulative hazard

  • "hazard"hazard

  • "density"density

  • "hr"hazard ratio

  • "sdiff"survival difference

  • "hdiff"hazard difference

  • "loghazard"log hazards

  • "meansurv"mean survival

  • "meansurvdiff"mean survival difference

  • "odds"odds

  • "or"odds ratio

  • "margsurv"marginal (population) survival

  • "marghaz"marginal (population) hazard

  • "marghr"marginal (population) hazard ratio

  • "meanhaz"mean hazard

  • "af"attributable fraction

  • "fail"failure (=1-survival)

  • "margfail"marginal failure (=1-marginal survival)

  • "meanmargsurv"mean marginal survival, averaged over the frailty distribution

  • "uncured"distribution for the uncured

grid

whether to merge newdata with a regular sequence of event times (default=FALSE)

seqLength

length of the sequence used when grid=TRUE

se.fit

whether to calculate confidence intervals (default=FALSE)

link

allows a different link for the confidence interval calculation (default=NULL, such that switch(type,surv="cloglog",cumhaz="log",hazard="log",hr="log",sdiff="I", hdiff="I",loghazard="I",link="I",odds="log",or="log",margsurv="cloglog", marghaz="log",marghr="log"))

exposed

a function that takes newdata and returns a transformed data-frame for those exposed or the counterfactual (defaults to incrementing “var”)

var

specify the variable name or names for the exposed/unexposed (names are given as characters)

keep.attributes

Boolean to determine whether the output should include the newdata as an attribute (default=TRUE)

use.gr

Boolean to determine whether to use gradients in the variance calculations when they are available (default=TRUE)

...

additional arguments (for generic compatibility)

Details

The confidence interval estimation is based on the delta method using numerical differentiation.

Value

A data-frame with components Estimate, lower and upper, with an attribute "newdata" for the newdata data-frame.
