## How do you plot a survival curve?

Use the following steps to create the survival curve.

- Step 1: Copy the values in columns D and H into the columns J and K.
- Step 2: Copy the values in the range J3:J13 to J14:J24.
- Step 3: Create a list of values in column L as shown below, then sort from smallest to largest values in column L:

## How do you read a Kaplan-Meier table?

The Kaplan-Meier plot can be interpreted as follow: The horizontal axis (x-axis) represents time in days, and the vertical axis (y-axis) shows the probability of surviving or the proportion of people surviving. The lines represent survival curves of the two groups. A vertical drop in the curves indicates an event.

**How do you analyze survival data?**

Survival analysis is used in several ways:

- To describe the survival times of members of a group. Life tables. Kaplanâ€“Meier curves.
- To compare the survival times of two or more groups. Log-rank test.
- To describe the effect of categorical or quantitative variables on survival. Cox proportional hazards regression.

### How do you read a survival graph?

The lines represent survival curves of the two groups. A vertical drop in the curves indicates an event. The vertical tick mark on the curves means that a patient was censored at this time. At time zero, the survival probability is 1.0 (or 100% of the participants are alive).

### What is Kaplan Meier method in SPSS?

Kaplan-Meier using SPSS Statistics. Introduction. The Kaplan-Meier method (Kaplan & Meier, 1958), also known as the “product-limit method”, is a nonparametric method used to estimate the probability of survival past given time points (i.e., it calculates a survival distribution).

**What are the variables in a Kaplan-Meier survival analysis?**

For a Kaplan-Meier survival analysis, you will have at least four variables. In this example, these are: 1) The case identifier, id, which simply lets SPSS Statistics distinguish between each case (i.e., participant) during the Kaplan-Meier procedure.

#### What is Kaplan Meier analysis in psychology?

The figure below depicts the use of a Kaplan-Meier analysis. Independent groups are being compared on the time it takes for an outcome or event to occur. The outcome is measured as a dichotomous categorical variable. Kaplan-Meier is a type of survival analysis.

#### What is the Kaplan-Meier model based on?

The Kaplan-Meier model is based on estimating conditional probabilities at each time point when an event occurs and taking the product limit of those probabilities to estimate the survival rate at each point in time. Example. Does a new treatment for AIDS have any therapeutic benefit in extending life?
