simdat {casebase}R Documentation

Simulated data under Weibull model with Time-Dependent Treatment Effect

Description

This simulated data is and description is taken verbatim from the simsurv.

Usage

simdat

Format

A dataframe with 1000 observations and 4 variables:

id

patient id

eventtime

time of event

status

event indicator (1 = event, 0 = censored)

trt

binary treatment indicator

Details

Simulated data under a standard Weibull survival model that incorporates a time-dependent treatment effect (i.e. non-proportional hazards). For the time-dependent effect we included a single binary covariate (e.g. a treatment indicator) with a protective effect (i.e. a negative log hazard ratio), but we will allow the effect of the covariate to diminish over time. The data generating model will be

h_i(t) = γ λ (t ^{γ - 1}) exp(β_0 X_i + β_1 X_i x log(t))

where where Xi is the binary treatment indicator for individual i, λ and γ are the scale and shape parameters for the Weibull baseline hazard, β_0 is the log hazard ratio for treatment when t=1 (i.e. when log(t)=0), and β_1 quantifies the amount by which the log hazard ratio for treatment changes for each one unit increase in log(t). Here we are assuming the time-dependent effect is induced by interacting the log hazard ratio with log time. The true parameters are 1. β_0 = -0.5 2. β_1 = 0.15 3. λ = 0.1 4. γ = 1.5
