Dear Fred,

-stsum-, -stptime- and -stir- are no regression commands. adjust just provides adjusted predictions after an estimated model..

why don't you use a regression model like_

. streg a b c d, strata(drug) dist(exp) // or another distribution if appropriate
. predict MTTF , mean time // mean time to failure
. predict HR , hr // H(t)
. table drug, c (mean MTTF mean HR)

Hope this helps,

I hope someone might have some suggestions concerning the following problem.

I am examining a series of drug treatments. I want to know the rate of discontinuation of the treatments. I analyze each drug separately (preserve,drop,restore). Following stset, I can get the results by -stsum-, -stptime- and -stir-. However, I would like to know the rates adjusted at specific covariate levels.

I can do this with non-survival regression analysis.

reg a b c d
adjust b=3 c=4 d=12

Is there anyway to do this sort of adjusted analysis with survival data to get adjusted rates?
