Distribution Analysis with Censored Data

6 - Meteoroid

The current Distribution Analysis tool only allows for one field to be selected. Is there another tool that allows for other fields (columns) to be selected such as Frequency column and Censored flag column?

Similar to Minitab where you can perform Right Censoring Parametric Distribution Analysis by selecting a column for time to failure for example and columns for frequency but more importantly whether some of the data is censored or not.

Hi mredissi,


I'm not familiar with Minitab but based on your explanation, you should check out the Survival Analysis tool. You can download and add to your Predictive group if you'd like. You can select if a field is a censored or an event and select if the field is left or right-censored. 


Hope this helps!
