The cenboxplot function uses cenros to estimate the censored values. The
cenros function requires at least 2 uncensored observations to be able to
do the regression. The cenros function does issue a warning when there are
more than 80% censored data, but that is suppressed in cenboxplot.
Hope this helps.

Subject: [R] NADA package/cenboxplot() method: maximum censored
Content-Type: TEXT/PLAIN; format=flowed; charset=US-ASCII
One set of data has censored (less-than detection limits) water
concentrations for 80-100% of all observations. My initial trial-and-error
attempts to apply the cenboxplot() method suggests that it has an upper
limit to the percentage of censored observations. I do not see this limit
Dennis Helsel's second edition.
Has anyone experience plotting censored data and can provide me with
maximum percentage of censored data in a set of observations?
