Welcome to Statalist, Sergey!

See the entry for -stpower- in the Stata Survival manual.

By the way, the correct spelling of our favorite program is "Stata", not "STATA".  In English, words all capitalized are "acronyms", meaning that their letters stood for words in the original, sometimes abandoned, names.  So, for example, "SAS" and "SPSS" are acronyms, because their original names were "Statistical Analysis System" and "Statistical Package for the Social Sciences".  

"Stata" is a name the company made up and its letters don't stand for anything else (see the end of the Statalist FAQ), so the only capitalized letter is the initial "S", just as in our names.

 we want to do several models ( 1-univariate model with number of death from cancer and exposure to different chemicals, 2-the previous model adjusted for exposure to internal radiation).
I have done a literature review and now I know hazard ratios of such exposures in previous studies. The problem I don't know how to construct my STATA formula for power. Could you help me with this? Number of deaths and study sample are known.

Have a good day,
