By Paul D Allison

Effortless to learn and accomplished, Survival research utilizing SAS: a pragmatic consultant, moment version, through Paul D. Allison, is an available, data-based creation to equipment of survival research. Researchers who are looking to learn survival info with SAS will locate simply what they wish with this absolutely up-to-date re-creation that includes the various improvements in SAS tactics for survival research in SAS nine. even if the booklet assumes just a minimum wisdom of SAS, more matured clients will research new thoughts of information enter and manipulation. quite a few examples of SAS code and output make this an eminently sensible publication, making sure that even the uninitiated develop into refined clients of survival research. the most issues offered contain censoring, survival curves, Kaplan-Meier estimation, speeded up failure time types, Cox regression types, and discrete-time research. additionally incorporated are subject matters no longer often coated in survival research books, resembling time-dependent covariates, competing hazards, and repeated occasions. Survival research utilizing SAS: a realistic consultant, moment version, has been completely up-to-date for SAS nine, and all figures are offered utilizing ODS pictures. This re-creation additionally records significant improvements to the STRATA assertion within the LIFETEST method; contains a part at the PROBPLOT command, which bargains graphical tips on how to review the healthy of every parametric regression version; introduces the hot BAYES assertion for either parametric and Cox versions, which permits the consumer to do a Bayesian research utilizing MCMC equipment; demonstrates using the counting procedure syntax instead strategy for dealing with time-dependent covariates; incorporates a part on cumulative occurrence features; and describes using the recent GLIMMIX process to estimate random-effects versions for discrete-time info.

Example text

Clearly one must reject the null hypothesis that all age strata have the same survivor function. Three of the six pairwise comparisons are also significant, either with or without the adjustment. 0000 CHAPTER 3 Estimating and Comparing Survival Curves with PROC LIFETEST THE LIFE-TABLE METHOD If the number of observations is large and if event times are precisely measured, there will be many unique event times. The KM method then produces long tables that may be unwieldy for presentation and interpretation.

When events are repeatable, it is common to measure the time of an event as the time since the most recent occurrence. Thus, if the event is a hospitalization, we may measure the length of time since the most recent hospitalization. In principle, the hazard for the occurrence of a particular kind of event can be a function of all of these times or any subset of them. Nevertheless, the continuous-time methods considered in this book require a choice of a single time origin. ) Although you can sometimes include time measurements based on other origins as covariates, that strategy usually restricts the choice of models and may require more demanding computation.

61 CHAPTER 3 Estimating and Comparing Survival Curves with PROC LIFETEST 51 For each interval, 14 different statistics are reported. The four statistics displayed in the first panel, while not of major interest in themselves, are necessary for calculating the later statistics. Number Failed and Number Censored should be self-explanatory. Effective Sample Size is straightforward for the first five intervals because they contain no censored cases. The effective sample size for these intervals is just the number of persons who had not yet been arrested at the start of the interval.
