This article develops a one-sample test for H0: F̄ = F̄0 in presence of random right censoring. The test statistic is of particular interest when the alternative hypothesis is that the survival ratio = F̄ / F̄0 is monotone. It is proved that the test statistic is asymptotically normal under H0. The specific case where the censoring and survival times have proportional hazards is also considered. Finally, the testing procedure is applied to two well-known data sets.
