Abstract : In an effort to widen the area of applicability of the self-consistent estimator of a bivariate survival distribution developed earlier to more complex situations, the following situation of double censoring was considered. The Nonparametric Estimation of a Bivariate Survivorship Function with Doubly Censored Data: Frequently are doubly censored-that is, some of the data may be censored on the left (late entries) some on the right (losses) while some others may be uncensored (deaths). Keywords: Computations, Iterations. (kr)
