In all stages except IV, where there are however only a very few patients who do not have poorly differentiated tumors. 2. For stage IV the parametric models fit pretty well. For stages I to III, however, the log logistic and Weibull models both overestimate the number of short to medium term survivors and underestimate the number of long term survivors, as one might expect from the discussion in 1. This is less pronounced in stage III than in I and II. Figures 3 and 4 show raw product-limit estimates S(y) computed from the lifetimes in stages II and III with no covariate adjustment, along with estimated survivor functions computed under the log logistic model with the covariates indicated on the graph.
