What is the difference between these two commands? I ran both and found:
BASELHAZARD file: the first column seemed to match the survival time values in the raw data and I assume that the second column is the estimated baseline hazards.
ESTBASELINE file: I am not sure what this is...I thought the first column would be the survival time values and the second would be the estimated baseline hazards. However, the first column is showing numbers that do not match the survival time values in the raw data (although the metric seems right) and the second column values are monotonically decreasing (could it be the survival function?).
Also, please tell me how the baseline hazard rates are estimated in Mplus. I am guessing it is related to Dr. Breslow's comments in the Cox (1972) paper.
