This week’s paper for journal club is short and has a nice figure:
Geng et al, Sampling-Based Approach to Determining Outcomes of Patients Lost to Follow-Up in Antiretroviral Therapy Scale-Up Programs in Africa
It looks like this corrected estimate is quite different than the uncorrected version!
I think the mathematics involved have an extended treatment in this work referenced by Geng et al: Addressing an idiosyncrasy in estimating survival curves using double-sampling in the presence of self-selected right censoring

Two basic questions for readers: What does it mean, to be “lost to follow-up”? What is a probability weight?
Related to answering the latter: paper and discussion of survey weights linked from an old HA blog — https://healthyalgorithms.com/2011/05/24/journal-culture/
