Coolen, F. P. A. and Yan, K. J. (2004) 'Nonparametric predictive inference with right-censored data.', Journal of statistical planning and inference., 126 (1). pp. 25-54.
We present a new method of statistical inference for data that include right-censored observations. The method is based on Hill's A(n), a generalization of this assumption is introduced explicitly to deal with right-censored observations. We derive bounds for the predictive survival function. We compare this approach with Berliner and Hill's A(n)-based method and with Kaplan and Meier's product-limit estimator. One of the attractive features of our method is detailed graphical presentation of the effects of right-censoring.
