Abstract:

A theory of multivariate life table analysis is developed. Estimators are developed for various multivariate interval failure rates. These estimators are multivariate extensions of the usual estimator in the univariate case. Under appropriate conditions, the estimators are shown to be asymptotically normal and asymptotically independent. The key tool used is a theorem of Sethuraman 1963 Some limit distributions connected with fixed interval analysis, Sankhya, Series A, 25, 395-398.
