Statistical analysis of interval-censored failure time data
MetadataShow full item record
In this thesis, we will examine the statistical methods used in survival analysis applied to interval-censored failure time data. Interval-censored data is not widely used due to the fact that it is more difficult to work with. However, the same methods commonly used for random- censoring can be applied to interval-censoring as well. This includes finding the basic quantities, survival curves, regression analysis, Bayesian regression analysis and a comparison between interval-censored data and random-censored data.
