Roland,

If you want to calculate cumulative incidence of small bowel cancer
and carcinoid then you would also need to take into account the
competing risk of death. You can do this by .stcompet. Also, have a
look at a very nice program called : .stexpect to calculate the
'expected' cumulative incidence.

Hope this helps,

Raoul
