Generalizations of Current Status Data with Applications
In estimation of a survival function, current status data arises when the only information available on individuals is their survival status at a single monitoring time. Here, we briefly review extensions of this form of data structure in two directions: (i) doubly censored current status data, where there is incomplete information on the origin of the failure time random variable, and (ii) current status information on more complicated stochastic processes. Simple examples of these data forms are presented for motivation.
