This package provides functions to generate censored samples of type I, II and III, from any random sample generator. It also provides the option to create left and right censorship Along with this, the generation of samples with interval censoring is in the testing phase. With two options of fixed length intervals and random lengths.

You can install rcens from CRAN via:

Or install the latest development version (on GitHub) via `{devtools}`

:

Create easily a new censored data set establishment the percentage of censoring and the original distribution of random variable.

In this example create a right censored data type III and fit Kaplan Meier (survival library).

```
#Example Exponential - Uniform
devtools::install_github("dlsaavedra/rcens")
library(rcens)
library(survival)
Data = rcensT3(rdistrX = rexp, pdistrC = punif, rdistrC = runif,
param_X = list("rate" = 2),
param_C = list("min" = 0, "max" = "lambda"),
n = 1e02, theta = .5, right = TRUE)
S = Surv(Data$sample_censored,Data$censored_indicator, type = "right")
s1 = survfit(S ~ 1)
CDF_censored = ecdf(Data$sample_censored)
Survival_CDF = Vectorize(function(x){ 1 - CDF_censored(x)})
CDF_original= ecdf(Data$sample_uncensored)
Survival_CDF_original = Vectorize(function(x){ 1 - CDF_original(x)})
plot(Survival_CDF, col = "blue", xlim = c(0,2))
title("Survival Curve")
plot(Survival_CDF_original, col = "red", add= TRUE, xlim = c(0,2))
lines(s1$time, s1$surv, col = "green", xlim = c(0,2))
legend("topright",c("original","censured", "Survival_KM"),
col = c("red", "blue", "green"), lty = 1)
```

In the folder examples_plot you can find example for each function in this packages.

We are currently working to generate data with interval right censoring, both with fixed and random interval length. Soon we will propose a function to generate data with double interval censoring. All this while maintaining the possibility of using any distribution for the original data.
