I'm trying to create Kaplan Meier plots using time to infection with a
particular disease (in days) in a cohort of dogs as my event variable. 
I want to adjust for the age of the animals at the time when they became
infected, and also for the sampling round date at the time of infection.

For some reason when I add 'date' to the adjustfor command:
adjustfor(age date) - I get a single straight failure at the start.
'Age' alone is fine- but 'date' alone throws up the same problem. I've
tried this with date in string, numerical and date form and neither is
any better.
Is this a problem that sounds familiar to anyone?

Here is an example of my data if it helps at all:

dogID		survival time	age	date@failure
1			4		0.5	12/04/93 (in any format)
2			258		1.0	04/09/94 (")
3			82		0.8	24/07/93 (")

sts graph, name(all) adjustfor(age date) xtitle(days in field) ///
title(" ") ytitle(probability T>t)
