Assumptions regarding right censoring in the presence of left truncation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Clinical studies using complex sampling often involve both truncation and censoring, where there are options for the assumptions of independence of censoring and event and for the relationship between censoring and truncation. In this paper, we clarify these choices, show certain equivalences, and provide examples.
