YPmodel: The Short-term and Long-term Hazard Ratio Model for Survival
This package contains various inference procedures associated with a two-sample semi-parametric model that can accommodate a flexible range of hazard ratio patterns. This model contains the proportional hazards model and the proportional odds model as sub-models, and accommodates non-proportional hazards situations to the extreme of having crossing hazards and crossing survivor functions. Overall, this package has four major functions: 1) the parameter estimation, namely short-term and long-term hazard ratio parameters; 2) 95 percent and 90 percent point-wise confidence intervals and simultaneous confidence bands for the hazard ratio function; 3) p-value of the adaptive weighted log-rank test; 4) p-values of two lack-of-fit tests for the model. See the included "read_me_first.pdf" for brief instructions. In this version (1.1), there is no need to sort the data before applying this package.
