survcomp: an R/Bioconductor package for performance assessment and comparison of survival models

Bioinformatics. 2011 Nov 15;27(22):3206-8. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btr511. Epub 2011 Sep 7.


The survcomp package provides functions to assess and statistically compare the performance of survival/risk prediction models. It implements state-of-the-art statistics to (i) measure the performance of risk prediction models; (ii) combine these statistical estimates from multiple datasets using a meta-analytical framework; and (iii) statistically compare the performance of competitive models.
