Abstract The failure rate function is generalized for doublytruncated random variables, This generalized function is used to characterize the distribution function and to obtain the properties that any function must have to be a generalized failure rate function, both for continuous & discrete random variables. From the theoretical results are constructed nonparametric estimators of the Kaplan-Meier type and cumulative-hazard type.
