StATS: The price of Kaplan-Meier (September 23, 2004)
I rarely find time to read the Statistics journals anymore, but I did run across an excellent article in the September 2004 issue of JASA.
The Price of Kaplan-Meier. Meier P, Karrison T, Chappell R, Xie H. Journal of the American Statistical Association 2004: 99(467); 890-896. [Abstract]
This article refers to another article by Rupert Miller published in 1983 with the provocative title "What Price Kaplan-Meier?". [Medline].
