The two-stage test of the Li's test and area between the CIF curves test

Description

Statistical inference of two-stage test. Stage I is the Li's test, and stage II is area between the CIF curves(ABC) test.

Usage

ABC.ts(time, status, group, nboot=1000, alpha=0.05, seed=12345)

Arguments

time

The followed up time for testing data.

status

The status indicator, should be coded as 0= censored, 1= event of interest, 2= all other competing events.

group

The group indicator for comparison, and the elements of this vector should take either 0 or 1. Normally, 0= control group, 1= treatment group.

nboot

The times of bootstrap resamplings, with default as nboot=1000.

alpha

The overall significance level, with default as alpha=0.05.

seed

The seed number, with default seed=12345.

Value

method

Three test results are involved, the Li's test, ABC test, and the two-stage test.

statistic

The statistic of the Li's test, ABC test, and the two-stage test.

Pvalue

The P value of the Li's test, ABC test, and the two-stage test.
