Life Table & Survival Time Distribution Results - Function Plots Tab

Life Table Analysis

Select the Function plots tab of the Life Table & Survival Time Distribution Results dialog box to access options to display the results of the analysis in a graphical format.

Results for model. Use the Results for model drop-down box to fit to the data one of the four common theoretical distributions of survival times: Exponential, Linear Hazard, Gompertz, and Weibull (see the Introductory Overview; see also Notes and Technical Information for the interpretation of the parameters for the Weibull distribution). The selection you make determines the output (parameters, graphs) displayed after selecting other options in this dialog.

Plot of hazard function. Click the Plot of hazard function button to display a graph of the hazard function, and the actual observed data. The particular model (theoretical distribution) to which the estimated functions pertain can be chosen via the option Results for model drop-down box (see above).

Plot of survival function. Click the Plot of survival function button to display a graph of the survival function, and the actual observed data. The particular model (theoretical distribution) to which the estimated functions pertain can be chosen via the option Results for model drop-down box (see above).

Plot of probability density function. Click the Plot of probability density function button to display a graph of the probability density function, and the actual observed data. The particular model (theoretical distribution) to which the estimated functions pertain can be chosen via the option Results for model drop-down box (see above).
