drop out rate in proc seqdesign

 

 

 

Hi,

I need some help figuring out how to use the loss=exp(hazard=hazard rate) option in proc seqdesign correctly.  If the trial is expected to have 10% drop out total, but most is early (within 4 months of randomization), what's the proper (or best) way to calculate the hazard rate?  Any help vastly appreciated.

run;
