  • Abstract In this paper we propose a generalized rank test based on discrete interval-censored failure time data to determine whether two lifetime populations come from the same distribution. It
    reduces to the Logrank test or Wilcoxon test when one has exact or right-censored data. Simulation shows that the proposed test performs pretty satisfactory. An example is presented
    to demonstrate how the proposed test can be applied in AIDS study.
