Description

Test the survival difference between survival groups

Usage

1
testSurvival(survTerms, ...)

Arguments

survTerms

survTerms object: processed survival terms

...

Arguments passed on to survival::survdiff

subset

expression indicating which subset of the rows of data should be used in the fit. This can be a logical vector (which is replicated to have length equal to the number of observations), a numeric vector indicating which observation numbers are to be included (or excluded if negative), or a character vector of row names to be included. All observations are included by default.

na.action

a missing-data filter function. This is applied to the model.frame after any subset argument has been used. Default is options()$na.action.

rho

a scalar parameter that controls the type of test.

Value

p-value of the survival difference or NA

Note

Instead of raising errors, an NA is returned
