Miscellaneous Functions for Survival Analysis

Package: survMisc
Type: Package
Version: 0.5.5
Date: 2018-07-03
License: GPL (>= 2)
LazyLoad: yes

A collection of functions for the analysis of survival data. These extend the methods already available in package:survival.
The intent is to generate a workspace for some of the common tasks arising in survival analysis.

There are references in many of the functions to the textbooks:

K&M Klein J, Moeschberger M (2003). Survival Analysis, 2nd edition.
New York: Springer. doi: 10.1007/b97377
T&G Therneau TM, Grambsch PM (2000). Modeling Survival Data: Extending the Cox Model.
New York: Springer. doi: 10.1007/978-1-4757-3294-8

Notes for developers

  • This package should be regarded as 'in development' until release 1.0, meaning that there may be changes to certain function names and parameters, although I will try to keep this to a minimum. As such it is recommended that other packages do not depend on or import from this one until at least version 1.0.

  • Naming tends to follow the camelCase convention; variables within functions are typically alphanumeric e.g. a1 <- 1.

For bug reports, feature requests or suggestions for improvement, please try to submit to github. Otherwise email me at the address below.
