On the location parameter confidence intervals based on a random size sample from a partially known population
- 18 Downloads
The problem of constructing confidence intervals of a fixed length for the location parameter based on a random size sample is considered. It is proposed to use the confidence interval
, whereθ p * is an adaptive estimator,σ2 is the Fisher information, and p−1 is the mean of the sample size. Nonparametric bounds are given for the limit as p → 0 confidence probability. Bibliography: 5 titles.
$$\theta _p^* - u\sqrt p /\sigma< \theta< \theta _p^* + u\sqrt p /\sigma $$
