A Note on the Variable Kernel Estimator of the Hazard Function from Randomly Censored Data
In a recent paper (Tanner and Wong, 1983b), a family of data-based nonparametric hazard estimators was introduced. Several of these estimators were studied in an extensive simulation experiment. The estimator which allows for variable bandwidth was found to have a superior performance. In this note, sufficient conditions for the variable kernel estimator to be strongly consistent are presented.
