Input

Specify data range for analysis, including time data range, censor data range and grouping range.

Time Range Specify time data column
Censor Range Specify censor data column
Grouping Range (Optional) Specify group data range. Note that the grouping column will be set as categorical if Text column.

Censoring Value(s)

Specify the censor subject value, which identifies which time values in the observation data set are censored

Survival Tables

Use this branch to specify report table to be output

Event and Censor Values Summary Check box for output the summary of event and censored value result.
Survival Estimates Check box for output the survival estimates result.
Quartile Estimates Check box for output the quantile estimates result.
Mean Estimate Check box for the mean estimates result
Confidence Level in % for Quartile/Mean Estimate Text box to enter a confidence level to be used when computing errors for the survival function and upper and lower limits of the quartile estimates.

Survival Plots

Specify the plot type to be output

Survival Check box for output survival curve.
Add Confidence Intervals Add confidence intervals to the survival curve.
One Minus Survival Check box for output of one minus survival curve, i.e. the cumulative distribution curve.
Hazard Check box for output of the hazard curve.
Log Survival Check box for output of the log survival curve.
Plot all survival curves in one graph Check to plot all the survival curves in one graph window

Equality Test
