Comparing Two Survival Function In The Case Of Heavily Censored Data

Authors : Hamimes Ahmed . Benamirouche Rachid .

Abstract

To test for equality between heavily censored survival functions. The comparison between the average risk values is used. This value calculated in the Kaplan Meier model, according to a Bayesian design, and through the posterior mean approach. . This method gives credibility to the results found because the calculation of the risk mean is not identical for all durations because of incomplete data or censored data
