Abstract : This report documents a statistical package (MSURV) designed to analyze matched observations which are subject to arbitrary right censorship. The input data are assumed to arise from a matched survival study, in which cases are matched to controls with respect to variables suspected of being confounders. MSURV features: life table output for cases and controls; Kaplan-Meier survival curve estimates, and confidence bands for cases and controls with plotting option; linear rank tests for comparing cases and controls; and a test for comparing cases and/or controls with a life table distribution.
