A note on the product-limit estimator under right censoring and left truncation. (English) Zbl 0628.62101
In many applications involving follow-up studies, individuals’ lifetimes may be subject to left truncation in addition to the usual right censoring. Here we consider the product-limit estimator of the survival curve \(S\) or an appropriate conditional version of \(S\). The asymptotic behaviour of the estimator is briefly described together with an example.
