Kaplan-Meier estimate on the plane: Weak convergence, LIL, and the bootstrap


  • Dabrowska, Dorota M.


We consider estimation of the bivariate survival function F(s,t) under bivariate random right censoring. It is shown that the bivariate product integral estimator can be written as , where is a sum of mean zero iid processes and is a remainder term of order O((n-1logn)1/2 (n-1log logn)1/8) a.s. Using this representation we establish weak convergence of as well as the law of iterated logarithm. Similar results are obtained for the bootstrap version of .
