You can plot the cause-specific hazard functions using -sts graph,h -
You repeat this for each cause and look the graphs.
You can also use cumulative incidence function which are estimated by
-stcompet - Then you can plot the functions for each group in one plot
These tools will help you visualized what is happening onto other causes.
