Fred, If you would still like to get predicted values - you can define the variables in your model in terms of difference from the sample mean (or from the value of variable you would like to predict), run -stcox- and then run -predict basesurv-. Then you can use the -collapse- command to get the projected survival rates. I suggest you take a look at my following working paper published in SSRN, and particularly the section that starts on page 16: http://ssrn.com/abstract=1973326 On Fri, Dec 30, 2011 at 6:31 PM, Fred Wolfe <fwolfe@arthritis-research.org> wrote: > Thank you. > > On Fri, Dec 30, 2011 at 9:54 AM, Cameron McIntosh <cnm100@hotmail.com> wrote: >> >> You might be able to get them through a different type of hazard model: >> Kyyrä, T.
