MLEcens: Computation of the MLE for bivariate (interval) censored data
This package contains functions to compute the
nonparametric maximum likelihood estimator (MLE) for the
bivariate distribution of (X,Y), when realizations of (X,Y)
cannot be observed directly. To be more precise, we consider
the situation where we observe a set of rectangles that are
known to contain the unobservable realizations of (X,Y). We
compute the MLE based on such a set of rectangles. The methods
can also be used for univariate censored data (see data set
'cosmesis'), and for censored data with competing risks (see
data set 'menopause'). We also provide functions to visualize
the observed data and the MLE.
