I have a quick (perhaps very naive) question here.
Suppose I have a Cox Regression model in which I have modeled a spline curve on a Predcitor. I want to plot the results of this regression (i.e., predicted Hazard Ratios across the Predictor spectrum).
I have to option:
- to plot the y-axis in linear scale (as following):
- to transform the y-axis in log-scale (as following):
From a theoretical point of view, and assuming both are suitable option, which is better? On one side, I am thinking that the log scale may be "more right" than the linear one (as one would do with forest plot), but I would also like to listen to a more expert opinion.
