# Re: st: Estimating the hazard function

```Thanks Steven.

How do I actually incorporate the hazard contributions into -kdensity-?

The analysis time variable is _t, and I've generated the hazard
contributions through running -sts gen H=h-

Just unsure how to apply -kdensity- to _t while also using the hazard
contributions -H- to weight it somehow.
