  • Abstract In this paper, we prove that the simulation method for
    interval-censored data proposed by Fay (1999) is consistent in the
    sense that if we select a sample, then the estimate obtained from
    Turnbulls (1974) EM algorithm will converge to the
    true parameter when the sample size tends to infinity. We also
    propose a non-parametric rank test for interval-censored data to
    determine whether two populations come from the same distribution.
    Simulation result shows that the proposed
    test statistics performs pretty satisfactory.
