# JEL ratio test for independence of time to failure and cause of failure in competing risks

@inproceedings{Sreelakshmy2021JELRT, title={JEL ratio test for independence of time to failure and cause of failure in competing risks}, author={N. Sreelakshmy and Sreedevi E.P}, year={2021} }

In the present article, we propose jackknife empirical likelihood (JEL) ratio test for testing the independence of time to failure and cause of failure in competing risks data. We use U-statistic theory to derive the JEL ratio test. The asymptotic distribution of the test statistic is shown to be chi-square distribution with one degree of freedom. A Monte Carlo simulation study is carried out to assess the finite sample behaviour of the proposed test. The performance of proposed JEL test is…

It is argued that the problem of estimation of failure rates under the removal of certain causes is not well posed until a mechanism for cause removal is specified, and a method involving the estimation of parameters that relate time-dependent risk indicators for some causes to cause-specific hazard functions for other causes is proposed for the study of interrelations among failure types.
