When You Went too Far with Survival Plots During the survminer 1st Anniversary
We are celebrating the 1st anniversary of the survminer’s release on CRAN! Due to that fact I have prepared the most (uber platinum) customized survival plot that I could imagine. I went too far because it took over 30 parameters to create a graph..
survminer, a package for drawing easily beautiful and ‘ready-to-publish’ survival curves with the ‘number at risk’ table and ‘censoring count plot’, has became very popular at the end of a previous year. It happend due to 3 great methodology posts about Cox Proportional Hazards model and Survival Analysis basics by Alboukadel Kassambara (kassambara) published on STDHA
If you are working in the survival analysis field, you might be interested in reading the post covering the newest features in survminer: survminer 0.2.4
Right now, after a year of the first CRAN release, survminer has been downloaded 11k times and has been used and cited in several research articles:
- Primary resistance to PD-1 blockade mediated by JAK1/2 mutations
- Methods for Evaluating Respondent Attrition in Web-Based Surveys
- Antiretroviral therapy improves survival among TB-HIV co-infected patients who have CD4+ T-cell count above 350cells/mm3
- The serological response against foot and mouth disease virus elicited by repeated vaccination of dairy cattl
- The serological response against foot and mouth disease virus elicited by repeated vaccination of dairy cattle
- ActiviTeen: A Protocol for Deployment of a Consumer Wearable Device in an Academic Setting
Due to the celebration of it’s 1st anniversary on CRAN, I have prepared a long survival graph of Kaplan-Meier estimates of survival curves, where each option is described below. I think I went too far to present the possible customization of the graph because this example takes over 30 parameters!
