Using a proportional hazard model the effect of a binary covariate on outcome is interpreted in terms of the relative risk of a patient with the characteristic as compared to a patient without the characteristic. When the covariate is continuous the interpretation of the effect of the covariate on outcome is more difficult. Here one typically reports the relative risk of a patient with a one-unit increase in the covariate. Most clinical investigators would rather have the continuous covariate converted into a binary covariate reflecting high and low risk values of the covariates.

To apply this approach the possible range of threshold values needs to be restricted. 5. Let C(γ ) be a standardized test statistics for the two sample problems with groups defined by the threshold parameter γ , then Lausen and Schumacher show that Max C(γ ) , γ ∈ [X(nε) , Xn(1−ε) ] ⇒ |W 0 (u)| , √ u∈[ε,1−ε] u(1 − u) sup as n → ∞. 20) where φ( ) is the standard normal density function. These results suggest the following corrected p-value approach. For all γ in the range [X(nε) , X(n(1−ε))] we compute either the Wald, score or likelihood ratio test pvalue.
