`rms`

and `survival`

have been reviewed there.
]]>For example in R there are two packages that i know of to do survival analysis: rms and survival. How do I know if these packages are performing these calculations correctly? If there was a publication that would evaluate the accuracy of such packages that will be great. It will give us more confident when using these packages.

Thanks once again!

It would be interesting to do a meta-analysis of articles in this journal to see:

(a) are there sufficient descriptive stats to do statistical inference?

(b) how much evidence are the studies really providing?

Randomized response for mass behind-the-scenes data collection seems like a really good idea. It’d be great if something like this could become an industry default. ]]>

It uses randomized-response like techniques to achieve differential privacy and does not collect private data directly.
