Abstract In survival analysis, proportional hazards models are commonly used in a distribution-free way for regression where the response variable has been right-censored. However, often a simple linear model may be more appropriate for the data. We present an overview of the linear regression method of Buckley and James (1979) as an interesting distribution-free alternative. It is a method providing consistent parameter estimates, and, through simulation, has been successfully appraised in the literature in comparison to other regression methods. The model is fitted iteratively, and censored points in the scatterplot are moved to estimated positions as if they had been observed without censoring. In this paper we will concentrate on scatterplot effects, model fitting and diagnostics.
