st: Estimating the probability of censoring |

Hello,

I'm seeking guidance on a series of commands I've written to estimate the probability of being censored. Might anyone be able to offer commentary as to whether I've done this correctly? The resulting unadjusted probability of censoring ranges from 0-1, while the adjusted probability goes above 1.

sysuse cancer.dta, clear

gen id = _n // generate individual IDs

stset studytime, failure(died==0) // note that total person-time is 744

*estimate the unadjusted probability of censoring

sts gen cens = s

*estimate the adjusted probability of censoring

stcox drug age, nohr

predict coeff_cens, xb // predicts linear coefficients of censoring

gen p_cens = exp(coeff_cens) // adjusted probability of time-to-censoring

*lists the results

list id drug age died cens p_cens in 40/48, clean noobs
