A note on data-adaptive kernel estimation of the hazard and density function in the random censorship situation. (English) Zbl 0606.62040
In a recent paper, M. A. Tanner [ibid. 11, 994-998 (1983; Zbl 0542.62029)] proves pointwise consistency of a variable bandwidth kernel estimator for the hazard function. In the present note, a simplified proof of uniform consistency of a data-adaptive kernel estimator with certain additional advantages is given.
