11.6 An Estimator of the Distribution Function When the Data are Censored (Kaplan–Meier)

Assumptions

B1. Let c11-math-1336 be independent, each with continuous life distribution c11-math-1337. Let c11-math-1338 be independent, each with continuous censoring distribution function c11-math-1339. c11-math-1340 is the censoring time corresponding to c11-math-1341.
B2. We observe, for c11-math-1342,

equation

and c11-math-1344, where

equation

Thus, c11-math-1346 is 1 if is uncensored and we observe the true survival time, , rather ...
