  • Abstract In this article, we make inferences for the Weibull parameters and propose two test statistics for the comparison of two Weibull
    distributions based on interval-censored data. However, the distributions of the two statistics are unknown and not easy to obtain, therefore a simulation study is necessary. An urn model
    in the simulation of interval-censored data was proposed by Lee (1999) to select random intervals. Then we propose a simulation
    procedure with urn model to obtain approximately the quantiles of the two statistics. We demonstrate an example in AIDS study to
    illustrate how the tests can be applied to the infection time distributions of AIDS.
