Details
This is the new method of formatting msm objects for printing. The old method was based on printing lists of matrices. That produced a lot of wasted space for parameters which were zero, and it was difficult to match corresponding numbers between matrices. The new method presents all the transition intensities and covariate effects as a single compact table, and likewise for misclassification matrices.
Also in the old method, covariate effects were presented as log hazard ratios or log odds ratios. The log scale is more convenient mathematically, but unnatural to interpret. The new method presents hazard ratios for covariates on transition intensities and odds ratios for misclassification probabilities.
printnew.msm
is an alias for print.msm
.
Value
The object returned by print.msm
is a numeric matrix with one column
for each estimate or confidence limit for intensities and their
covariates, in the same arrangement as
printed, but with the underlying numbers in full precision. The results
formatted for printing are stored in the "formatted"
attribute of
the object, as a character matrix. These can alternatively be produced
by msm.form.qoutput
, which has no printing sideeffect.
msm.form.eoutput
produces the same arrangement for
misclassification probabilities instead of intensities.
