r^2 measures for a a `coxph` or `survfit` model

Description

r^2 measures for a a `coxph` or `survfit` model

Usage

```rsq(x, ...)

## S3 method for class 'coxph'
rsq(x, ..., sigD = 2)

## S3 method for class 'survfit'
rsq(x, ..., sigD = 2)
```

Arguments

 `x` A `survfit` or `coxph` object. `...` Additional arguments (not implemented). `sigD` significant digits (for ease of display). If `sigD=NULL`, will return the original numbers.

Value

A `list` with the following elements:

 `cod` The coefficient of determination, which is R^2 = 1-exp((2/n).(L[0]-L[1])) where L[0] and L[1] are the log partial likelihoods for the null and full models respectively and n is the number of observations in the data set. `mer` The measure of explained randomness, which is: R^2[mer] = 1-exp((2/m).(L[0]-L[1])) where m is the number of observed events. `mev` The measure of explained variation (similar to that for linear regression), which is: R^2 = R^2[mer] / ( R^2[mer] + pi/6(1-R^2[mer]) )
