Exponentiated exponential models for survival data


The Exponentiated Exponential (EE) model serves as an alternative to Exponential, Weibull and Gamma models. It is observed that EE model has been used in the analysis of complete life time data. In this paper an attempt has been made to study the modeling of censored survival data and the results are compared with other models. Log Likelihood ratio statistic and Cox-Snell residuals are used for the comparisons. The EE model performs better than Exponential and Weibull models. We also fitted Log-logistic model and compared with other models based on Baysian information criterion (BIC) and an information criterion (AIC). The Log-logistic model also performs better than the above models in situations when the censoring is at low level.
