# Methods for estimating the survival function

I want to estimate the survival function $S(t_0)=1-F(t_0)$, at a specific point $t_0$ where $F$ is a continuous cumulative distribution function, based on an uncensored sample $x_1,..,x_n$ and a nonparametric estimator. So far, I am considering two estimators $\hat S(t_0)=1-\hat F(t_0)$, where $\hat F$ is

(1) Kernel density estimator

(2) The empirical CDF.

What other methods could I consider using?
