Clustered survival data often arise in biomedical research. When the outcome depends on the size of the cluster, the cluster size is said to be informative. The assumption of non informative cluster size is commonly used even though it may be not true in some situations. We propose a test for the assumption of Informative Cluster Size (ICS) in clustered survival data with right censoring. Standard martingale results are used to obtain the asymptotic distribution of the test statistic.doi:10.5705/ss.202021.0349 fatcat:pq2yvlo62rguhb2w57t6p7uaju
