Re: st: -sts gen [newvar] = h- : why do I get monotonous (increasing) hazards? |

Thanks, Steve. I thought this was what I was doing. -sts [graph]- shows a smoothed density of the deltaH over time. I guess delthaH *is* what I get from -sts gen-. So I must be plotting it the wrong way. Could you help me have a "step function" (in _t, I guessed) instead of -sts [graph], hazard- exactly as a histogram relates to a kernel density estimate?
