Regression Modeling Strategies

Regression modeling, testing, estimation, validation, graphics, prediction, and typesetting by storing enhanced model design attributes in the fit. 'rms' is a collection of functions that assist with and streamline modeling. It also contains functions for binary and ordinal logistic regression models, ordinal models for continuous Y with a variety of distribution families, and the Buckley-James multiple regression model for right-censored responses, and implements penalized maximum likelihood estimation for logistic and ordinary linear models. 'rms' works with almost any regression model, but it was especially written to work with binary or ordinal regression models, Cox regression, accelerated failure time models, ordinary linear models, the Buckley-James model, generalized least squares for serially or spatially correlated observations, generalized linear models, and quantile regression.



Regression Modeling Strategies

Current Goals

  • A non-downward compatible change will occur in the next release of the package
  • The survfit.formula function (seen by the user as just survfit) for obtaining nonparametric survival estimates will be replaced by the npsurv function
  • The purpose is to avoid conflicts with the survival package
  • survfit.coxph has a new id option that generalizes individual=TRUE; need to change survfit.cph and survest.cph to use that

Web Sites

To Do

  • Fix survplot so that explicitly named adjust-to values are still in subtitles. See tests/cph2.s.
  • Fix fit.mult.impute to average sigma^2 and then take square root, instead of averaging sigma
  • Implement user-added distributions in psm - see https://github.com/harrelfe/rms/issues/41
