Jespersen shows that under the null hypothesis this statistics converges in distribution to the sup |W 0 (p)|, 0 p 1, where W 0 ( ) is a Brownian Bridge. 12) j =1 so that p-values and critical values of the test can be found. Contal and O’Quigley (1999) also provide a corrected test based on the score statistics. The test is based on the following result due to Billingsley (1968). Suppose that φ1 , . . , φn are exchangeable random variables that meet the following three conditions: n n ϕi → 0, i=1 ϕi2 → 1 p i=1 p and max |ϕi | → 0 1 i n p as n → ∞.

15) It is well known (cf. Klein and Moeschberger (2003)) that these residuals behave like a censored sample from a unit exponential. 1 with ψi = Ri − δi . 13) with error distribution E we define the residual by Ri = 1 σˆ ln[Ti ] − µˆ − b∗ Zi , i = 1, . . 16) where all parameters are estimated under a model without X. If the error distribution is selected properly then the Ri ’s are a sample from a standardized version of the error distribution with µ = 0 and σ = 1. 17) and the results of the previous section apply.
