The TRACE data frame contains 1877 patients and is a subset of a data set consisting of approximately 6000 patients. It contains data relating survival of patients after myocardial infarction to various risk factors.
sTRACE is a subsample consisting of 300 patients.
tTRACE is a subsample consisting of 1000 patients.
This data frame contains the following columns:
a numeric vector. Patient code.
a numeric vector code. Survival status. 9: dead from myocardial infarction, 0: alive, 7: dead from other causes.
a numeric vector. Survival time in years.
a numeric vector code. Clinical heart pump failure, 1: present, 0: absent.
a numeric vector code. Diabetes, 1: present, 0: absent.
a numeric vector code. Ventricular fibrillation, 1: present, 0: absent.
a numeric vector. Measure of heart pumping effect based on ultrasound measurements where 2 is normal and 0 is worst.
a numeric vector code. 1: female, 0: male.
a numeric vector code. Age of patient.
