# Re: st: How to draw cummulative incidence function of both events and competing-events on the same sheets?

```You haven't said whether you want adjusted curves or simply baseline CIFs - I'm assuming the latter. Let's say you have fictional data with survival time survtime and competing outcomes outcome==1 and outcome==2.

There are a couple of options:

1. Use -stcrreg- to calculate the baseline CIFs for the events of interest and then plot them. The manual entry for -stcrreg postestimation-, example 2, shows the basic idea.

stset survtime, fail(outcome==1)
stcrreg, compete(outcome==2)
predict cif_1, basecif
stset survtime, fail(outcome==2)
stcrreg, compete(outcome==1)
predict cif_2, basecif
line cif_* _t, sort c(J J) legend(order(1 "Outcome 1" 2 "Outcome 2"))

2. Use Enzo Coviello's -stcompet- from SSC. I generally find this faster and more convenient but the curves start at the first failure rather than at 0 - sometimes this looks a little messy in which case the -stcrreg- option is preferable.

stset survtime, fail(outcome==1)
stcompet cif=ci, compet1(2)
gen cif_1=cif if outcome==1
gen cif_2=cif if outcome==2
line cif_* _t, sort c(J J) legend(order(1 "Outcome 1" 2 "Outcome 2"))
