A Tale of Two Empirical Likelihoods

We first discuss and compare two general but different approaches to the Empirical Likelihood with right censored data. Both approach appeared in the literature. We argue that one is better. We then examine a censored quantile regression model and propose an Empirical Likelihood with the "case-weight" estimator. Simulation and Example are given at the end.
