I am exploring the use of the survreg function in R to analyze my current experiment.

Does anyone know what the "Value" column in the output of the function stands for?

  • $\begingroup$ If you mean the column headed "Value" as returned by a call to summary, then it is a priori a regression coefficient (for your survival model). Its interpretation depends on the fitted distribution. $\endgroup$

The value column simply gives the values for the coefficient estimates.

    $\begingroup$ @user1806 This is basically what I answered in my comment. Now, the point is that the OP want to know how it reads in plain english, which depends a priori of the kind of parametric assumptions that are made in the model. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @chi Thanks very much for the interpretation. That makes sense. $\endgroup$ Nov 19 '10 at 7:21
