An exact test for hazard similarity

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


An exact test is developed for hazard similarity and in particular for exponentiality. This test is distinct from more common goodness-of-fit tests such as the Kolmogorov-Smirnov goodness-of-fit test, as it does not require full specification of the null distribution. This test is obtained through a characterization of hazard-similar distributions and a generalization of Fisher s test for association.
