It does, however, describe how the distribution of a measured quantity is altered in the presence of detection thresholds, which in turn is the cause of censoring in a dataset.

I'm glad to know the primer is highly considered. It was an accidental discovery from scheming the American Statistician. There were quite tutorial like articles. Apart from a thank you note, I must say Schechter function which is used for describing incompleteness and basically it takes the form of Gamma distribution. It's not always true that astronomers only name errors (both uncertainty and bias) instead of modeling them. Thanks for your comment. I’m glad to know the primer is highly considered.

I have been wanting to read it since my thesis work is on lifetime data. My Reliability professor considered this an extremely strong primer of life data analysis.
