st: zoom in on a Kaplan-Meier plot (display only a subset of the timeaxis) |

Is there a way to create a Kaplan-Meier plot that is "zoomed in" on a subset of the time axis? To make this concrete: It is easy to create a twoway plot that is "zoomed in" on a portion of the axes, for instance:

clear

set seed 5

set obs 30

gen ID=_n

gen x=invnormal(uniform())

gen y= -2 * x + invnormal(uniform())

twoway (scatter y x , aspectratio(1))

twoway (scatter y x if x<1/2 & x>0, aspectratio(1))

/*

The second plot "zooms in" on the first.

But what if we have survival data? The second sts graph command below does *not* do what I want; it creates a subset of the data and builds a Kaplan-Meier plot afresh using that subset. Is there any straightforward way to make a "zoomed-in" Kaplan-Meier plot? /*

clear

set seed 5

set obs 30

gen ID=_n

gen t=exp(uniform()) - 1

stset t

sts graph sts graph if t > 0.5 & t < 0.8

Thanks for any ideas
