## Print an aareg object

### Description

Print out a fit of Aalen's additive regression model

### Usage

```
## S3 method for class 'aareg'
print(x, maxtime, test=c("aalen", "nrisk"),scale=1,...)
```

### Arguments

`x` |
the result of a call to the |

`maxtime` |
the upper time point to be used in the test for non-zero slope |

`test` |
the weighting to be used in the test for non-zero slope. The default weights are based on the variance of each coefficient, as a function of time. The alternative weight is proportional to the number of subjects still at risk at each time point. |

`scale` |
scales the coefficients. For some data sets, the coefficients of the Aalen model will be very small (10-4); this simply multiplies the printed values by a constant, say 1e6, to make the printout easier to read. |

`...` |
for future methods |

### Details

The estimated increments in the coefficient estimates can become quite unstable near the end of follow-up, due to the small number of observations still at risk in a data set. Thus, the test for slope will sometimes be more powerful if this last ‘tail’ is excluded.

### Value

the calling argument is returned.

### Side Effects

the results of the fit are displayed.
