LIFETEST Procedure

The FAILCODE option in the TIME statement enables you to perform a nonparametric analysis of competing-risks data. PROC LIFETEST estimates the cumulative incidence function (CIF), which is the probability subdistribution of failure from a specific cause. If you have more than one sample of competing-risks data, PROC LIFETEST performs Gray’s test (Gray 1988) to compare the CIFs of the samples.
