Invitation to complete quick survey to improve Kaplan-Meier plots (KMunicate)  ProblemThe standard way to present time-to-event data, such as survival, is with Kaplan-Meier plots. These are formatted by journals and reported in a number of ways, but we find they commonly lack some key information. The key problems are:

  1. Expressing how many people are contributing data at any point in the graph, including the  pattern of censoring
  2. Expressing that the uncertainty of the estimate increases over time
  SuggestionWe have some initial suggestions on how to improve Kaplan-Meier plots, but we need your help to know which would be the most useful and most acceptable to a wide audience.
