Comparing quantile residual life functions by confidence bands
A quantile residual life function is the quantile of the remaining life of a surviving subject, as it varies with time. In this article we present a nonparametric method for constructing confidence bands for the difference of two quantile residual life functions. These bands provide evidence for two random variables ordering with respect to a quantile residual life order introduced in Franco-Pereira et al. (2010). A simulation study has been carried out in order to evaluate and illustrate the performance and the consistency of this new methodology. We also present applications to real data examples.
