I am using discrete-time survival analysis to inspect the

trouble with the code.

There are examples of how to predict the survival function in lesson 6 of this course by Stephen Jenkins:

What you ask for is the 1-survival function (that is, 1- the probability of having remained unemployed till time t).

Hope this helps,
