summary.cfc.survreg {CFC}R Documentation

Summarizing and plotting output of cfc.survreg

Description

summary and method for class cfc.survreg.

Usage

## S3 method for class 'cfc.survreg'
summary(object, obs.idx = "all", ...)
## S3 method for class 'summary.cfc.survreg'
plot(x, which = c(1, 2), ...)

Arguments

object

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

obs.idx

Index of observations to calculate mean cumulative incidence for; defaults to all observation.

...

Further arguments to be passed to/from other methods.

x

An object of class summary.cfc.survreg, usually the output of summary.cfc.survreg.

which

Vector of integers, indicating which plot(s) must be produced: 1) cumulative incidence functions, one per cause, as a function of time-to-index, all in the same plot, 2) comparison of cumulative incidence function with/without competing-risk adjustment. The unadjusted figure is equivalent to 1 minus the Kaplan-Meyer (i.e., survival) function.

Value

summary.cfc.surveeg produces a matrix of dimensions length(object$tout) (number of time points) by object$K (number of causes). See description of which aregument for plot.summary.cfc.survreg.
