Censored survival time is the outcome of numerous studies. We select a few examples from the medical literature to give a glimpse of the scope of studies involving censored survival time. Although survival time is usually the time to death, it can be broadly referred to as the time to the occurrence of an event of interest. For example, age of onset for breast cancer can be interpreted as a survival time.
