This class of objects is returned by the `coxph`

class of functions
to represent a fitted proportional hazards model.
Objects of this class have methods for the functions `print`

,
`summary`

, `residuals`

, `predict`

and `survfit`

.

coefficients

the vector of coefficients. If the model is over-determined there will be missing values in the vector corresponding to the redundant columns in the model matrix.

var

the variance matrix of the coefficients. Rows and columns corresponding to any missing coefficients are set to zero.

naive.var

this component will be present only if the `robust`

option was true. If so,
the `var`

component will contain the robust estimate of variance, and this
component will contain the ordinary estimate.

loglik

a vector of length 2 containing the log-likelihood with the initial values and with the final values of the coefficients.

score

value of the efficient score test, at the initial value of the coefficients.

rscore

the robust log-rank statistic, if a robust variance was requested.

wald.test

the Wald test of whether the final coefficients differ from the initial values.

iter

number of iterations used.

linear.predictors

the vector of linear predictors, one per subject. Note that this
vector has been centered, see `predict.coxph`

for more details.

residuals

the martingale residuals.

means

vector of column means of the X matrix. Subsequent survival curves are adjusted to this value.

n

the number of observations used in the fit.

nevent

the number of events (usually deaths) used in the fit.

concordance

the concordance, as computed by survConcordance.

first

the first derivative vector at the solution.

weights

the vector of case weights, if one was used.

method

the computation method used.

na.action

the na.action attribute, if any, that was returned by the `na.action`

routine.

The object will also contain the following, for documentation see the `lm`

object: `terms`

, `assign`

, `formula`

, `call`

, and, optionally, `x`

, `y`

,
and/or `frame`

.

The following components must be included in a legitimate `coxph`

object.

`coxph`

, `coxph.detail`

, `cox.zph`

, `residuals.coxph`

, `survfit`

, `survreg`

.
