sccr-package: The Self-Consistent, Competing Risks (SC-CR) Algorithms

Description Author(s) References


The SC-SR Algorithm is used to calculate the cause-deleted life expectancy improvement for left and right censored data. In the version 2.0 the function creating the probability matrix from double-censored data is added.
