Abstract.   When competing risks are present, the appropriate estimate of the failure probabilities is the cumulative incidence. stcompet creates new variables containing the estimate of this function, its standard error, and ln(−ln) transformed confidence bounds. Two examples are presented to illustrate the use of the new command and some key features of the cumulative incidence.
