dataCox: Cox Proportional Hazards Model Data Generation From Weibull...

Description Usage Arguments Details Value References Examples

Description

Function dataCox generaters random survivaldata from Weibull distribution (with parameters lambda and rho for given input x data, model coefficients beta and censoring rate for censoring that comes from exponential distribution with parameter cens.rate.

Usage

1
dataCox(n, lambda, rho, x, beta, cens.rate)

Arguments

n

Number of observations to generate.

lambda

lambda parameter for Weibull distribution.

rho

rho parameter for Weibull distribution.

x

A data.frame with an input data to generate the survival times for.

beta

True model coefficients.

cens.rate

Parameter for exponential distribution, which is responsible for censoring.

Details

For each observation true survival time is generated and a censroing time. If censoring time is less then survival time, then the survival time is returned and a status of observations is set to 0 which means the observation had censored time. If the survival time is less than censoring time, then for this observation the true survival time is returned and the status of this observation is set to 1 which means that the event has been noticed.

Value

A data.frame containing columns:
