Weighted empirical likelihood in some two-sample semiparametric models with various types of censored data
In this article, the weighted empirical likelihood is applied to a general setting of two-sample semiparametric models, which includes biased sampling models and case-control logistic regression models as special cases. For various types of censored data, such as right censored data, doubly censored data, interval censored data and partly interval-censored data, the weighted empirical likelihood-based semiparametric maximum likelihood estimator (θ̃n, F̃n) for the underlying parameter θ0 and distribution F0 is derived, and the strong consistency of (θ̃n, F̃n) and the asymptotic normality of θ̃n are established. Under biased sampling models, the weighted empirical log-likelihood ratio is shown to have an asymptotic scaled chi-squared distribution for censored data aforementioned. For right censored data, doubly censored data and partly interval-censored data, it is shown that weakly converges to a centered Gaussian process, which leads to a consistent goodness-of-fit test for the case-control logistic regression models.
