Abstract: In the area of statistical science, the phenomenon that appears when the measurement of the variable of study cannot be quantified is called censorship. The present project is focused in the censorship which takes places in environmental studies, when the result obtained is under detection limit. This could be a problem in the statistical treatment of the data, due to the censored values are usually substituted and the application of the standard statistical methods could provide wrong results and unreliable conclusions. For this reason, the aim of this project is to introduce the statistical censorship in a general way, as well as the statistical methods that are recommended to deal with it, doing an exhaustive review.
