The literature on the statistical analysis of interval-censored failure time data has grown rapidly in last twenty years or so and among others, one relatively complete review is given by Sun (2006), one of only two books currently available on interval-censored data. The other book is the edited volume given by Chen et al. (2012). Interval-censored data include the usual right-censored failure time data as a special case, but have much more complex structure and provide less relevant information than the right-censored data. We will discuss several types of interval-censored data including univariate interval-censored data, multivariate interval-censored data and competing risks interval-censored data. For each topic, the focus will be on the discussion of some basic concepts and issues that commonly occur in the analysis of such data and the review of some recent advances or literature, mainly after Sun (2006).
