# Left-Truncated Life Table Output Tab

Every session has an Output
tab, on which you can customize miscellaneous settings that affect
the appearance of the results
matrix. In a Left-Truncated
Life Tables session, you can use the Output tab to edit the following
settings.

#### Standard Life

Mark the Display Standard
Life (Monthly Intervals) checkbox to include the Standard
Life Tables in your matrix. The **Standard
Life Tables** record the basic survival statistics. For a list of the
statistics available for display on the **Standard
Life Table, see** Standard Life Pages.

**Cumulative Summary**

The Cumulative Summary section of the
Left-Truncated Life Table tab is enabled when you mark the checkbox
for Display Cumulative
Summary (Annual Intervals) box in the Display
section.

When you choose to display
the **Cumulative Summary** on the Left-Truncated Life Tables **tab**,
tables will be included in your results
matrix that display the statistics you select at annual intervals.
The variables chosen on the **Table tab** define the page, row,
and column headings. When selected for display, the **Cumulative
Summary tables** are always at the beginning of the results matrix.

#### Set Statistic Type and Number of Decimal Places for Survival

These options let you specify whether survival in the results matrix
will be displayed as percents or proportions, and to how many decimal
places they will be rounded. Select the statistic type from the Display Statistics As drop-down
list, and the precision from the Number
of Decimal Places drop-down list. For example, if you select "Proportions"
and "0.0001", the number 0.55555 will be displayed as 0.5556
in the results matrix. If you select "Percents" and "0.01%",
it will be displayed as "55.56%".

Once you have set the statistic type and precision, you may click the
Set Defaults button if you want
to use these settings automatically each time you create a new Survival
Session.

#### Suppress Pages with Fewer than *n*
Cases Alive

This option allows you to suppress the display of statistics on survival
life pages that are based on fewer than a specified minimum number of
cases entering the first interval. The affected survival life pages will
appear in the survival matrix but will be empty. The empty pages are left
in the final matrix in order to properly document which pages were suppressed.
