Abstract:

Individuals are observed until either they withdraw or die. The data are then grouped into intervals and from the grouped data it is desired to estimate the death-rate for the intervals. The present paper considers only a single interval. A method is suggested which gives interesting estimates with standard errors that do not tend to zero as the sample size tends to infinity. Author
