Figure 15.2 Proportional Hazards Fit Report for Data 

Proportional Hazards Fit Report for Data

In the data, there are only two groups. Therefore, in the Parameter Estimates report, a confidence interval that does not include zero indicates an alpha-level significant difference between groups. Also, in the Effect Likelihood Ratio Tests report, the test of the null hypothesis for no difference between the groups shown in the Whole Model Test table is the same as the null hypothesis that the regression coefficient for Group is zero.
