summary.bsgw {BSGW}R Documentation

Summarizing Bayesian Survival Generalized Weibull (BSGW) model fits

Description

summary method for class "bsgw".

Usage

## S3 method for class 'bsgw'
summary(object, pval = 0.05, burnin = object$control$burnin, ...)
## S3 method for class 'summary.bsgw'
print(x, ...)

Arguments

object

An object of class "bsgw", usually the result of a call to bsgw.

x

An object of class "summary.bsgw", usually the result of a call to summary.bsgw.

pval

Desired p-value, based on which lower/upper bounds will be calculated. Default is 0.05.

burnin

Number of samples to discard from the beginning of each MCMC chain before calculating median and lower/upper bounds.

...

Further arguments to be passed to/from other methods.

Value

The function summary.bsgw calculates median as well as lower/upper bounds for all model coefficients, given the supplied p-value. It also calculates the p-value for coefficients being significant smaller/larger than zero. It contains returns an object of class "summary.bsgw" with the following elements:

call

The matched call.

pval

Same as input.

burnin

Same as input.

coefficients

A p x 4 matrix with columns for the estimated coefficient median, its lower and upper bounds given the user-supplied p-value, and the p-value for being smaller/larger than zero.

survreg.scale

List of lower, median, and upper values of the survreg-style scale parameter (i.e. inverse of shape parameter in rweibull) for the training-set population.
