Plot method for alacoxIC object

Description

The plot method for alacoxIC object for plotting the estimated baseline culmulative function and the estimated baseline survival function.

Usage

  ## S3 method for class 'alacoxIC'
plot(x, what = "cum.hazard", xlim, ylim, xlab, ylab, axes = FALSE, ...)

Arguments

...

for S4 method only.

x

An object of class alacoxIC returned by the alacoxIC function.

what

A character string specifying which function will be plotted. Default is "cum.hazard", which plots the estimated baseline cumulative hazard function. Set to "survival" to plot the estimated baseline survival function.

xlim

A vector with two elements for the limits of follow-up time.

ylim

A vector with two elements for the limits of y-axis.

xlab

A label for the x axis.

ylab

A label for the y axis.

axes

A logical value drawing both axes. Default is FALSE.

Details

The x argument must be the object returned by the alacoxIC function. Note that plot provides the conditional survival function for left truncated data, which is analogous to the function (5) of Alioum and Commenges (1996). See the usages in the examples given below.

Examples

  library(ALassoSurvIC)

  data(ex_ICLT) # interval censored and left truncated data
  lowerIC <- ex_ICLT$lowerIC
  upperIC <- ex_ICLT$upperIC
  trunc <- ex_ICLT$trunc
  X <- ex_ICLT[, -c(1:3)]
  result <- alacoxIC(lowerIC, upperIC, X, trunc, theta = 1.5)

  plot(result)  # plotting the estimated baseline cumulative hazard function by default
  plot(result, what = "survival")  # plotting the estimated baseline survival function
