Node 3 of 127. specifies the minimum time for the confidence bands. plots the estimated hazard functions. Other options for displaying the estimated survivor function are documented in the section Plot Options Superseded by ODS Graphics. PLOTS=(SURVIVAL LOGSURV LOGLOGLS HAZARD); for the life-table method, specifying PLOTS=ALL is equivalent to specifying PLOTS=(SURVIVAL Valid time-limit values are as follows: specifies that the time limit L be the largest event time in the data. Any character or hexadecimal string can be used to customize the plot appearance. specifies that the OUTSURV= data set contain only those observations that are included in the INTERVALS= or TIMELIST= option. The default is WORK.GSEG. For general information about ODS Graphics, see The following table depicts the behavior regarding the type of graphics produced: ODS Graphics is now the preferred method of requesting graphics. In the TIME statement, the survival time variable, Days, is crossed with the censoring variable, Status, with the value 0 indicating censoring. You can specify the following options: guarantees that tick values are shown on the time axis for those times when the numbers of subjects at risk are displayed. The initial interval is assumed to start at zero whether or not zero is specified in the list. GROUP= option, PROC LIFETEST produces a panel plot, with one cell per stratum, and each cell contains the cumulative incidence specifies a plot of the estimated probability density function versus time (life-table method only). The options listed in Table 49.1 are available in the PROC LIFETEST statement and are described in alphabetic order. If there is more than one local minimum in the interval, there is no guarantee that the local minimum found is also the global minimum. produces the Nelson-Aalen estimates of the cumulative hazards and the corresponding standard errors. 72–76). You can specify one of the following. estimates, unless you use the FAILCODE option in the TIME statement to stipulate a competing-risks analysis. by the INTERVALS= plots the estimated probability density functions (life-table method only). These options are described in alphabetic order. Since the Kaplan-Meier survival curve is a decreasing step function, each given time point falls in an interval that has a constant survival estimate. By default, PROC LIFETEST does not use observations that If you specify a STRATA statement with the The data set specified must be an ANNOTATE= type data set, as described in SAS/GRAPH Software: Reference. Here are some examples: The latter requests a plot of the estimated survivor function versus time and a plot of the estimated hazard function versus time, with Surv2 and Haz2 as their names in the GOUT= catalog, respectively. SAS/STAT User’s Guide. specifies the symbol value for the event observations in traditional graphics. The default is the largest observed event time. option nor the TIMELIST= D'autre part je souhaiterais changer le nom de l'axe des ordonnées. The plot-requests and plot-request options include the following. specifies that the Fleming-Harrington (FH) estimates be computed. For example, the option ALPHAQT=0.05 requests a 95% confidence The test requires that specifies how to display the survival/failure curves for multiple strata. 4. When this option is used with METHOD=KM, METHOD=BRESLOW, or METHOD=FH, it reduces Missing Values; Computational Formulas; Computer Resources; Output Data Sets; Displayed Output ; ODS Table Names; ODS Graphics; Examples: LIFETEST Procedure. This option is ignored option is not specified. For more information about the contents of the OUTCIF= data set, see the section OUTCIF= Data Set. selects the bandwidth from the interval (lower, upper) that minimizes the mean integrated squared error. specifies the confidence bands to be output to the OUTSURV= data set. specifies the number of characters n that are allowed for displaying the stratum labels. specifies a list of interval endpoints for the life-table method. Since the Kaplan-Meier survival curve is a decreasing step function, each given time point falls in an interval that has plots the estimated probability density function versus time (life-table method only). number p that represents the fractional proportion of the at-risk table height relative to the overall grid height, but that specification PROC LIFETEST outputs the Hall-Wellner confidence bands. the minimum time for the confidence bands. This option has no effect if the OUTSURV= specifies These endpoints must all be nonnegative numbers. You can specify covariates in the TEST statement. selects the bandwidth from the interval (lower, upper) that minimizes the mean integrated squared error. For each plot-request, you can use the NAME= option to specify a name to identify the plot. Warren F. Kuhfeld in Advanced Regression Models R&D at SAS demonstrates how to modify the survival plot from PROC LIFETEST by using procedure options and a set of macros. The CENSOREDSYMBOL= option cannot be used if the LINEPRINTER option or the ods graphics on statement is specified. Many new features have been added to the ODS Graphics plots. specifies the graphics catalog for saving traditional graphics output from PROC LIFETEST. plots the log of negative log of estimated survivor functions versus the log of time. I want to change the minimum on the y-axis from 0 to, say, 0.5. selects the bandwidth from the given numeric-list that minimizes the mean integrated squared error. Pointwise confidence limits are displayed optionally by specifying the CL option. Let be the MAXTIME= value or the largest observed time if the MAXTIME= option is not specified; let , where ceil() is the ceiling function. When ERROR=DELTA, the delta method is used to compute the variance. When you specify the NINTERVAL= option, PROC LIFETEST tries to find an interval that results in round numbers for express one quantity in terms of the other Peng Zeng (Auburn University)STAT 7780 { Lecture NotesFall 2017 3 / 25 . You can specify the OUTCIF= option in the PROC LIFETEST statement to create an output data set that contains the cumulative incidence estimates. The EVENTSYMBOL= option cannot be used if the LINEPRINTER option or the ods graphics on statement is specified. displays the numbers of subjects at risk at the given times. In such a situation, you can choose a time limit L and estimate the mean survival curve limited to a time L (Lee 1992, pp. output data set, and specifies the computation details of the survivor function estimation. For more information about the contents of the OUTSURV= data set, see the section OUTSURV= Data Set. specifies that the at-risk table be drawn outside the plot area. You can specify one of the following bandwidth-options. Optionally, this statement identifies an input data set and an output data set, and specifies the computation details of the survivor function estimation. The upper cell displays the survival plot, and the bottom cell displays the at-risk table. The default is 101. displays the pointwise confidence limits for the smoothed hazard. specifies the maximum time for the confidence bands. However, as of version SAS/STAT® 14.3, it is not capable of adjusting left truncation. specifies a list of interval endpoints for the life-table method. the maximum time for the confidence bands. specifies that life-table (or actuarial) estimates be computed. (For more information, see the section Modifying the Survival Plots.). The PLOTS= option syntax is documented separately for each type of graphics and is preceded by a heading that indicates the graphics type. For the equal-precision band, exceeds the largest observed event time, it is truncated to the largest observed event time. If the life-table method is used, the standard error of the density function (PDF_STDERR) and the standard error of the hazard function (HAZ_STDERR) are also output. The Breslow estimator is the exponentiation of the negative Nelson-Aalen interval is assumed to start at zero whether or not zero is specified in the list. displays the pointwise confidence limits for the survivor functions. All statements except the TIME statement are optional, and there is no required order for the statements that follow the PROC LIFETEST statement. The TIME statement specifies the variables … This parameter is overridden by the INTERVALS= option. This is also referred to as the log cumulative hazard transformation since it applies the logarithmic function to the cumulative specifies the level of significance for the % confidence intervals for the survivor, hazard, and density functions. by the WIDTH= You can specify the following global-plot-option: specifies that only the specified plots in the list be produced; otherwise, the default survivor function plot is also displayed. For example, the option ALPHA=0.05 requests the 95% option is specified. See the section Missing Values for details. for more information. The GOUT= option cannot be used if the LINEPRINTER option or the ods graphics on statement is specified. The default value is the time origin. The You can customized the display by using the following survival-options. This option is ignored unless METHOD=PL. For example, the option ALPHAQT=0.05 requests a 95% confidence interval for the quartiles of the survival time. confidence limits for the survivor function. specifies a list of time points at which the Kaplan-Meier estimates are displayed. The PROC LIFETEST statement invokes the procedure. minimum. otherwise, the stratum numbers are used. The first and second characters define the vertical and horizontal bars, respectively, which are also used in drawing the steps of the product-limit survival function. The test requires that a pivot for sweeping a covariance matrix be at least this number times a norm of the matrix. have a missing value in any stratum variables. This option has no effect if there is only one stratum. option. The default is 101. displays the pointwise confidence limits for the smoothed hazard. creates an output SAS data set to contain the overall chi-square test statistic for association with failure time for the are also output. All statements except the TIME statement are optional, and there is no required order for the statements that follow the PROC LIFETEST statement. is displayed. Some commonly created efficacy outputs used for these analyses … specifies the transformation applied to to obtain the pointwise confidence intervals and the confidence bands for the survivor function as well as the confidence intervals for the quartiles of the survival times. The string should be four characters. specifies that plots are produced by a line printer instead of by a graphical device. The default value is 0.05. specifies the significance level for the % confidence intervals for the quartiles of the survival time. If ODS Graphics is enabled, PROC LIFETEST also displays a plot of the estimated survivor function. The following keywords can be used; the default is CONFTYPE=LOGLOG. The default is the smallest observed event time. For more information, refer to the chapter titled "The GREPLAY Procedure" in SAS/GRAPH Software: Reference. This parameter is overridden estimator. If n is greater than or equal to the maximum length of the stratum labels, the stratum labels are used in the at-risk display; The default is the smallest observed event time. specifies that separate plots for the strata be organized into panels of two or four plots, depending on the number of strata. This option has no effect if the OUTSURV= option is not specified. Optionally, this statement identifies an input and an OUTSURV= data set, and specifies the computation details of the survivor function estimation. This is also referred to as the log cumulative hazard transformation since it is applying the logarithmic function to the cumulative hazard function. If the BANDWIDTH= option is not specified, the default is BANDWIDTH= suppresses the plotting of the censored times on a Kaplan-Meier, Breslow, or Fleming-Harrington survival curve. For more information, see The time points are listed in the column If the life-table if METHOD=LT is specified. displays the pointwise confidence limits for the survivor functions. The value, name or ’string’, is the symbol value specification allowed in SAS/GRAPH software.

Proc LifetestProc Lifetest Estimation of Survival ProbabilitiesEstimation of Survival Probabilities Confidence Intervals and Bands, meanlifemedianlifemean life, median life Basic Plots Estimates of Hazards, log survival, etc. names the SAS data set used by PROC LIFETEST. creates an output SAS data set to contain the overall chi-square test statistic for association with failure time for the variables in the TEST statement, the values of the univariate rank test statistics for each variable in the TEST statement, and the estimated covariance matrix of the univariate rank test statistics. If no plotting options are specified, PROC LIFETEST displays a table that shows the product-limit estimate of the survivor When this option is used with the product-limit method, it reduces the number of survival estimates displayed by displaying only the estimates for the smallest time within each specified interval. The plot-requests include the following: plots the estimated survivor functions versus time.
