The hybrid censoring scheme, which is a mixture of Type-I and Type-II censoring schemes, has been extended to the case of progressive censoring schemes by Kundu and Joarder [Analysis of Type-II progressively hybrid censored data, Comput. Stat. Data Anal. 50 (2006), pp. 2509-2528] and Childs et al. [Exact likelihood inference for an exponential parameter under progressive hybrid censoring schemes, in Statistical Models and Methods for Biomedical and Technical Systems, F. Vonta, M. Nikulin, N. Limnios, and C. Huber-Carol, eds., Birkhäuser, Boston, MA, 2007, pp. 323-334]. In this paper, we derive a simple expression for the Fisher information contained in Type-I and Type-II progressively hybrid censored data. An illustrative example is provided applicable to a scaled-exponential distribution to demonstrate our methodologies.
