      The change-point hazards model has received much attention, since it can not only display the impacts of treatments or medical breakthroughs more directly, but also provide the time point when those impacts occur. In this paper, we propose the single change-point hazards model for current status survival data with long-term survivors and investigate the estimation for the proposed model. Large-sample properties of the estimators are established. Simulation studies are carried out to evaluate the nite-sample performance of the estimation.
