[…] the number ‘at-risk’ of making the i → j transition). non-parametric estimates of the conditional transition probabilities were then obtained using the aalen-johansen estimator with the r package mssurv [, ]. parametric estimates were obtained by first fitting time-dependent cox regression models to each of the possible transition hazards outlined in fig. . these estimates of the transition […]

[…] with the increasing attention on multi-state modelling of event-history data, more and more software packages have been made available, especially in r []; for example the mstate [], msm [] and mssurv [] packages. see the latter, or the books of beyersmann et al. [] and willekens [], for detailed overviews of available r packages. the computations in this paper has been performed in r using […]

[…] an estimate of the variance which has been shown to be suboptimal []. alternative r packages which can handle left-truncated data and use the greenwood-type estimate of the variance include etm [], mssurv [], and mstate []. these are specialized packages for multi-state models, of which competing risks is a special case. however, only the cmprsk package includes test statsitics [] for comparing […]
