Dear Michael,
at a very first glance, what hits the eyes is the adjusted probability of
being censoring sometimes above the usual upper constraint. How can it be? I
should have missed something in your assumptions.

Kind Regards,
Carlo

Oggetto: 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
