Proc SurveyPhreg and stepwise selection?

Is it possible to do automated stepwise selection for Proc SurveyPhreg? I see it's possible for Proc phreg, but the same command does not work with Proc SurveyPhreg.

Re: Proc SurveyPhreg and stepwise selection?

Probably not available.  While you look for a work-around be sure to look at: 

Stopping stepwise: Why stepwise and similar selection methods are bad, and what you should use

Another to look at would be:Frank Harrell's excellent text: Regression Modeling Strategies with Applications to Linear Models, Logistic Regression and Survival Analysis.
