ShinySurvival, a statistical software application in R, is an interactive tool for exploring and visualizing survival data. This application serves as an add-on to existing survival analysis functionality in R and makes decision-making and reporting more straightforward and efficient. ShinySurvival brings together multiple R graphics and analysis packages and allows the user to run descriptive and diagnostic analyses as well as perform various modeling approaches in exploring their data. The user will also be able to easily generate fully-customizable, presentation-quality tables, graphs and figures that can be directly imported into client reports, slide presentations and scientific manuscripts. This presentation will demonstrate the use of the ShinySurvival application in an analysis comparing various methods for analyzing AIDS survival times using various weighting techniques such as direct standardization and propensity score weighting to adjust for covariate effects when the proportional hazards assumption doesn’t hold.
