Sorting order for Surv objects

Sort survival objects into a partial order, which is the same one used internally for many of the calculations.

Keywords
survival
Usage
# S3 method for Surv
xtfrm(x)
Arguments
x

a Surv object

Details

This creates a partial ordering of survival objects. The result is sorted in time order, for tied pairs of times right censored events come after observed events (censor after death), and left censored events are sorted before observed events. For counting process data (tstart, tstop, status) the ordering is by stop time, status, and start time, again with censoring last. Interval censored data is sorted using the midpoint of each interval.

The xtfrm routine is used internally by order and sort, so these results carry over to those routines.

Value

a vector of integers which will have the same sort order as x.
