Dear David,

Thank you for your reply. I have come across rcorrp.cens before. However, I'm not sure it does quite what I want it to. It seems to compare whether one predictor is more concordant than another within the same survival function. I want to see whether one predictor is more concordant than another over two survival functions hence I fitted two rcorrcens functions.

E.g. if I have a development data set with a variable for age and a validation data set for age then I want to know if the concordance is the same over the development and validation data sets.

Thank you,
Laura
