Restricted cubic spline spss

- Blue line:
**restricted cubic spline**regression line with five knots located at the 5th, 25th, 50th, 75th, and 95th percentiles (vertical grey lines) (colour figure online) Full size image Fig. 2 - The
**cubic spline interpolation**is a piecewise continuous curve, passing through each of the values in the table. The domain of s is in intervals of [a, b]. S, S’, S” are all continuous function on [a, b]. Here Si(x) is the**cubic**polynomial that will be used on the subinterval [xi, xi+1]. The main factor about**spline**is that it combines ... - Multivariate adjusted
**restricted cubic spline**analyses were performed using the STATA package ‘postrcspline’. Cox analysis was used to characterize the impact of CKD on mortality with additional independent variables: BMI, sex, CVI, and FEV1% pred. Analysis was performed using**SPSS**version 24 (IBM, Armonk NY, USA). - rc_spline creates variables that can be used for regression models in which the linear predictor f(xvar) is assumed to equal a
**restricted****cubic****spline**function of an independent variable xvar. In these regressions, the user explicitly or implicitly specifies k knots located at xvar = t1, t2, ..., tk. f(xvar)... **Cubic****splines**are created by using a**cubic**polynomial in an interval between two successive knots. The**spline**has four parameters on each of the On the other hand, a smoothing**spline****restricted**to just four degrees of freedom is more rigid than other approaches, but probably oversmooths the data...
