Abstract

In this paper, we discuss the problem of testing the homogeneity of several populations when the available data are progressively Type-II censored. Defining for each sample a univariate counting process, we can modify all the methods that were developed during the last two decades (see e.g. [P.K. Andersen, Ø. Borgan, R. Gill, N. Keiding, Statistical Models Based on Counting Processes, Springer, New York, 1993]) for use to this problem. An important aspect of these tests is that they are based on either linear or non-linear functionals of a discrepancy process (DP) based on the comparison of the cumulative hazard rate (chr) estimated from each sample with the chr estimated from the whole sample (viz., the aggregation of all the samples), leading to either linear tests or non-linear tests. Both these kinds of tests suffer from some serious drawbacks. For example, it is difficult to extend non-linear tests to the K-sample situation when K[greater-or-equal, slanted]3. For this reason, we propose here a new class of non-linear tests, based on a chi-square type functional of the DP, that can be applied to the K-sample problem for any K[greater-or-equal, slanted]2.
