All my study patients have complete 1-year follow up for survival. Is it correct to say that the primary outcome measure - survival - was censored at 1 year from diagnosis.

Or censoring is only used when follow-up is incomplete?

    $\begingroup$ If follow-up stopped after 1 year before the event (=death) occured, then follow-up is in fact incomplete. Hence the outcome of your patients is indeed censored at 1 year from diagnosis. $\endgroup$
