Description

This produces a plot of the expected probability of survival against time, from each transient state. Survival is defined as not entering an absorbing state.

## S3 method for class 'msm'
plot(x, from, to, range, covariates, legend.pos, xlab="Time",
                   ylab="Fitted survival probability", lwd=1, ...)

Arguments

x

Output from msm, representing a fitted multi-state model object.

from

States from which to consider survival. Defaults to the complete set of transient states.

to

Absorbing state to consider. Defaults to the highest-labelled absorbing state.

range

Vector of two elements, giving the range of times to plot for.

covariates

Covariate values for which to evaluate the expected probabilities. This can either be:

the string "mean", denoting the means of the covariates in the data (this is the default),

the number 0, indicating that all the covariates should be set to zero,

or a list of values, with optional names. For example

list (60, 1)

where the order of the list follows the order of the covariates originally given in the model formula, or a named list,

list (age = 60, sex = 1)

legend.pos

Vector of the x and y position, respectively, of the legend.

xlab

x axis label.

ylab

y axis label.

lwd

Line width. See par.

...

Other arguments to be passed to the generic plot and lines functions.
