R Precision Factor (for a 95% CI)

The R precision factor is a measure of the precision of the estimate of tp, the pth quantile of the failure time distribution. An approximate 95% confidence interval for log(tp) is:

Equation shown here

resulting in a confidence interval for tp;

Equation shown here

where

Equation shown here

To obtain R, use the large sample approximation of the variance of the log(tp):

Equation shown here
