 Product-limit-Methoden um die mittlere Reaktionsdauer zu berechnen Explanation:product-limit method: For survival studies, the product-limit (Kaplan-Meier) estimate of survival is calculated by dividing time into intervals such that each interval ends at the time of an observation, whether censored or uncensored. The probability of survival is calculated at the end of each interval, with censored observations assumed to have occurred just after uncensored ones. The product-limit survival function is a step function that changes value at each time point associated with an uncensored value

Kaplan-Meier Schätzung (der Überlebenszeit)

Explanation:
Or Product-Limit-Schätzung

Die Schätzung von S(t) (Kaplan-Meier bzw Product-Limit Schätzung)
Das Verfahren von Kaplan und Meier benutzt nun statts konstanter Intervalle (z.B. 1 Woche) unterschiedlich lange Intervalle, und zwar genau so, daß jeder Todesfall am Ende eines Intervalls liegt:

Kaplan-Meier Schätzung seems to be the prevalent term; a search on Kaplan-Meier yielded about 400 or so hits.

Die Schätzung von S(t) (Kaplan-Meier bzw Product-Limit Schätzung)

Note that the example has Product-Limit Schätzung - i.e. no hyphen betweem Product-Limit and the word it defines. As far as I have been able to ascertain, the hyphen should be there (minor point!)
