Thanks for illuminating the topic further. I hope competing risks software will be compiled so that the wish list will move into an "achieved" list.

 

I tried to run –stpepemori-, but encountered a difficulty in regard of the instruction not to use identical value for varname and compet. I could be missing something?

 

Obtaining the preliminary new version of –strs- will be gratefully appreciated!

 

Best,

UG

Dear Uri Goldgerg,

 

thanks for using -stcompet-

At the last Italian Stata Meeting prof. Bill

Gould said that the competing risks matter is in

the "wish" (or "doing") list of the Stata Corporation.

Since this is a public mail I believe that prof

Gutierrez or Gould could directly give a more precise reply.

 

The -rsource- command, written by R. Newson,

allows to run R from within Stata. So, in the

meanwhile you could use the -cmprsk- R-package

from within Stata and import the results.

 

As further Stata opportunities in competing

risks, even if not directly addressing our

problem, there is -stpepemori- available on the

SSC archive, testing the equality of two

cumulative incidence functions, and new codes of

-strs- (a command estimating relative survival)

that allows to compute cumulative incidence

without knowing the cause of death, making use of

the expected probabilities of death. This new

version of -strs- is not yet available on the web

but I can send on request the preliminary version.

 

Best wishes.

 

Enzo
