K-M curve with censored obs

Hello.

In a survival analysis, I am preparing a Kaplan Meier survival curve.  While there are still patients that are alive and their survival times are censored, the largest observation (i.e. the patient with the
longest survival time) is not censored.  Therefore the estimate at that time equals zero  and the curve drops.  Is there anyway that I can avoid the curve from dropping to 0 and just have the curve stop at that point?

Thanks in advance.

Re: K-M curve with censored obs

One option would be to use the maxtime= option to specify a cutoff point for the graph.
