-spsurv- is by Stephen Jenkins, and it doesn't provide a -predict- option. One possible reason that a single prediction doesn't make sense with time-dependent predictors. I couldn't get -spsurv- to run the cancer example in its -help- without omitting the "drug" variable, but the results appear to be the same with and without version control. If you do not have time-dependent predictors, you can create your own predicted values (See 13.5 in the V11 User manual). For example, I ran the following command for the cancer data model in the -help file for -spsurv- spsurv dead logt age, id(id) seq(t) The linear predictor for time t is found by: x_t = hazard[_cons] + _b[logt]*logt _b[age]*age The discrete interval survival probability for interval t is: g_t = exp(-exp(x_t)) The probability s_T for survival up to time T for the non-cured part of the data is the product of the g_t for t<=T. It will probably be better to add the logs of the g's and then exponentiate. Finally the estimated probability of cure up to T is given by c + (1-c)*s_T c is in e(curep) or can be computed as exp([cure_p]_cons) The log(t) distribution form is very restrictive. Better, I think to group the data into larger intervals and estimate a separate parameter for each one, as Stephen recommends -Steve On Thu, Nov 19, 2009 at 12:03 PM, Mark S.
