On optimal choice of order statistics in large samples for the construction of confidence regions for the location and scale

Abstract

Given a large sample from a location-scale population we estimate the unknown parameters by means of confidence regions constructed on the basis of two order statistics. The problem of the best choice of those statistics to obtain good estimates, as \(n\rightarrow \infty ,\) is considered.
