I am trying to plot the -log(log(survival)) to visually test the proportional hazards assumption of a Cox regression. The plot, which should give two lines (one for each treatment) gives only one line and a warning message. I would appreciate help getting two lines, and an explanation of the warning message. My problem may the that I have very few events in one of my strata, but I don't know.


WARNING: Warning in xy.coords (x, y, xlabel, ylabel, log)  :
 2 x values <=0 omitted from logarithmic plot

> print(survfit(fit0),fun="cloglog")
Call: survfit.coxph(object = fit0)
