Abstract

Pointwise confidence intervals and simultaneous confidence bands for the survival function based on the log-minus-log and arcsine-square root transformations are considered, and their small sample performance is compared with that of their non-transformed counter-parts. For the confidence intervals and "the equal precision" bands a substantial improvement is obtained by using one of the transformed versions. For bands of the Hall-Wellner type there seems to be less reason for using transformations.
