Estimation of Weighted Residual Inaccuracy Measure for Right Censored Dependent Data


Recently inaccuracy measure has been widely used as a useful tool for measuring error in experimental results. The present paper we proposes nonparametric estimators for the weighted inaccuracy measure based on right-censored dependent data. The asymptotic properties of the proposed estimators are discussed. We illustrated the performance of the estimator using simulated and a real-life data set.
