Select the nonparametric analysis options for Distribution Overview Plot (Right Censoring)

Stat > Reliability/Survival > Distribution Analysis (Right Censoring) > Distribution Overview Plot > Options

If you selected a nonparametric analysis, you can specify the following options for the analysis.

Estimation Method
  • Kaplan-Meier: Estimate the parameters using the Kaplan-Meier method. Minitab displays a hazard function plot and a survival function plot based on Kaplan-Meier estimates.
  • Actuarial: Estimate the parameters using the actuarial method. Minitab displays a hazard function plot and survival function plot based on actuarial estimates.
    Specify time intervals as: 0 to: _ by _
    Use equally spaced time intervals. Enter numbers to indicate the time intervals on the plots. For example, if you enter 0 to 100 by 20, Minitab plots the results using the time intervals 0-20, 20-40, and so on, up to 80-100.
Show different variables or by levels
Indicate how you want to display the graphs for each variable or each level of the By variable. You can overlay the graphs for each variable (or each level) on the same graph, or you can display each graph separately.
Minimum and Maximum X Scale
  • Use default values: Use the values that Minitab automatically determines for the minimum and the maximum of the X scale.
  • Use: Select to enter a minimum value for the X scale or a maximum value for the X scale, or both.
Title
You can enter a custom title for the graphs.
