Cramer-Rao Lower Bounds For Estimators Based On Censored Data
The Cramer-Rao lower bounds for the variances of unbiased estimators based on censored data are given. Useful techniques of evaluation are then derived for these lower bounds. Examples are given to illustrate these techniques. Small-sample comparisons are made between the resulting lower bounds, the variances of the best linear unbiased estimators, and the variances of unbiased estimators which are based on the maximum likelihood estimators. © 1980, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
