This article develops a nonparametric procedure for testing marginal independence based on bivariate current status data. Asymptotic properties of the proposed tests are derived, and their finite-sample performance is studied via simulations. The method is applied to analyze data from a community-based study of cardiovascular epidemiology in Taiwan.
