  • A two-sample test for equality of survival distribution is one of the important issues in survival analysis, especially for clinical and epidemiological research. With interval censored data, some testing methods have been developed. This study introduces some testing methods and compares them under various situations through simulation study. Based on simulation result, it provides some useful information on choosing the most appropriate testing method in a given situation.
