Parametric Competing Cause Report

If you specify a Cause column in the launch window, the Parametric Competing Cause report appears. If you also specify All Distributions in the launch window, this report is labeled Parametric Competing Cause - All Distributions. The Parametric Competing Cause report contains the following:

Summary by Cause

Table that lists fit statistics (AICc and BIC) for each cause. If All Distributions is selected for the Distribution option in the launch window, this table includes fit statistics for each cause within each distribution fit.

Model Comparison

(Available only when All Distributions is selected for the Distribution option in the launch window.) Shows a table that lists fit statistics (AICc and BIC) for the fitted distributions. The distributions with the smallest AICc and BIC values are labeled in the right-most column. If one distribution has the smallest value for both AICc and BIC, that distribution is labeled “Best”. The Parametric Survival Fit report corresponding to the distribution with the smallest AICc is open by default.

For more information about the AICc and BIC statistics, see Likelihood, AICc, and BIC in Fitting Linear Models.
