Abstract

We consider methods of categorical data analysis applicable for the survival experimental design. The actuarial (or life table) estimator for groupped right censored survival data that is consistent under very special cases only is not perfect in the estimation problem, but is applicable anyway, because there is no consistent estimator of survival function of failure time under general non-parametric model of groupped survival data with independent right censoring. We revisited the actuarial estimator for groupped right censored data and create survival categorical tests based on the extended actuarial estimator.
