Abstract

Double censoring often occurs in collecting lifetime data and accordingly self-consistent estimators are widely employed for estimating the survival functions. In this paper we prove the weak convergence of self-consistent estimators using classical results on the Fredholm integral equation. Also, a method of calculating the asymptotic variance is presented.
