A nonparametric test for Type I censored data: r samples

Journal Article


This paper is concerned with testing that r random samples are all from the same population when the data are left (or right) censored. A statistic is developed which has elements of a goodness‐of‐fit statistic and of a modified Kruskal‐Wallis statistic. The efficiency of this statistic relative to some other commonly used statistics is calculated. Some Monte Carlo comparisons are given.
