A Recursive Formula for the Kaplan-Meier Estimator with Mean Constraints and Its Application to Empirical Likelihood

Abstract

The Kaplan-Meier estimator is very popular in analysis of survival data. However, it is not easy to compute the ‘constrained’ Kaplan-Meier. Current computational method uses expectationmaximization algorithm to achieve this, but can be slow at many situations. In this note we give a recursive computational algorithm for the ‘constrained’ Kaplan-Meier… (More)
