    One predictor overshadows all other?

    Thanks!

    One predictor overshadows all other?

    It is definitely the best predictor, true. However, the other predictors do have an impact, but only when that one predictor is at low values...

    One predictor overshadows all other?

    Hi everyone! I was wondering, how do I deal with a predictor that overshadows all others? All predictors included in the model are statistically significant, but one of the has a very strong impact on the dependent variables, so much that when its value is high, the impact of all other...

    Cox proportional hazard analysis - interpreting coefficients

    How did you get these numbers? Anyway, I attach the description of variables and the output of cox regression of my first analysis, where I treated the predictors as numericals. Can you help me interpret the results, please? Was my initial interpretation (1% increase in exogamy rate -> 11.46%...

    Cox proportional hazard analysis - interpreting coefficients

    Let me get this straight: are you saying that I could either say that a 20% increase in X corresponds to an 11.46% increase in the risk of extinction or a 1% increase in x corresponds to a (11.46/20)% = 0.573% increase in the risk of extinction?

    Cox proportional hazard analysis - interpreting coefficients

    So, here's my output after switching from numeric to character variables (I assume it used 0 as the reference group): how to I interpret these numbers?

    Cox proportional hazard analysis - interpreting coefficients

    Hi ondansetron and hlsmith, thank you for your answers! Ok, let me clarify. The data that I'm using are auto-generated from agent-based simulations. The agent-based model simulate a population with different characteristics. Each combination of characteristics produces a different scenario. The...

    Cox proportional hazard analysis - interpreting coefficients

    Hi everyone, thank you very much already for taking time to read my question! I have performed Cox proportional hazard analysis on some variables that were related to time-to-extinction of a certain population. The predictors varied between 0 and 100% but could only take on values that were...
