variance = "none"to return sample MCF estimates without variance estimates.
mcfobjects for a more minimal output by default.
Added a new package vignette introducing the function
Added a new argument
adjustRiskset to the method
mcf.formula() for specifying whether to adjust the size of risk set. The cumulative sample mean function estimates will be computed by setting
adjustRiskset = FALSE.
Added a new option of
"CSV" for cumulative sample variance estimates to the argument
variance of the method
Survr is deprecated since this version and will be removed in future.
Added implementation of nonparametric MCF estimates in C++ with help of Rcpp and replaced original implementation in R with the new implementation for a better computational performance.
simEventData for simulating survival, recurrent event, and multiple event data from stochastic process point of view.
mcfDiff.test for comparing two-sample MCFs by difference estimates over time and the pseudo-score tests.
origin to function
Survr for modeling processes with different time origins.
Added variance estimates of sample MCF from bootstrap methods.
Updated checking rule of argument
event of function
Survr for modeling sample MCF of cost in addition to number of events.
Updated Lawless and Nadaeu (1995) variance estimates in method
mcf.formula for sample MCF.
Survr(ID, time, event) ~ 1for modeling baseline rate function using gamma frailty model in function
rateRegwithout specifying any covariate.
baseRatefor estimated baseline rate function instead of the estimated coefficients of spline bases.
Added M-spline for modeling baseline rate to function
check to function
rateReg so that it is possible to skip the data checking step to slightly speed up the model fitting for cleaned data.
verbose to argument
control of function
rateReg to suppress all possible messages.
Added variance estimates for sample MCF by Poisson process method, and confidence interval based on the asymptotic normality of MCF itself (in addition to the logarithm of MCF) to function
Allowed multiple categorical variables in function
mcf,formula-method for the sample MCF for design with multiple factors.
Added sample valve-seat dataset from Nelson (1995) for demonstration.
Borrowed the power from R package splines2 for piece-wise constant and splines based baseline rate function, and thus boosted the performance of reda in model fitting.
Updated object class of fitted model,
Replaced generic function
plotMcf with methods for function
Updated data checking procedure for a better performance.
Added variable “gender” in sample simulated dataset,
simuDat for a better demonstration of sample MCF function.
Renamed main function name from
rateReg and added new argument.
Updated object class of fitted model.
Replaced sample simulated dataset for demonstration.
