Details

A primary use of this function is to retrieve survival at fixed time points, which will be properly interpolated by the function.

Value

a list with the following components:

surv

the estimate of survival at time t.

time

the timepoints on the curve.

n.risk

In expected survival each subject from the data set is matched to a hypothetical person from the parent population, matched on the characteristics of the parent population. The number at risk is the number of those hypothetical subject who are still part of the calculation.
