SURVIV: Software that Computes Estimates of Survival With Multinomially Distributed Data
Entry ID: USGS_SURVIV

Summary
Abstract: Program SURVIV (a stand alone program) is used to estimate survival rates from user specified cell probability functions. The program reads the user specified algebraic expressions and constructs a FORTRAN 77 subroutine that calculates the log-likelihood function. Numerical optimization is then used to estimate the unknown parameters. Currently the program is available for CDC-NOS, VAX-VMS, UNIX, PC-DOS, and MS-DOS operating systems. The NOS version is written in single precision, while the VMS, UNIX, and DOS versions are written in double precision.
