Title: One-sided truncated sequential t-test: application to natural resource sampling

Author: Fowler, Gary W.; O'Regan, William G.;

Date: 1974

Source: Res. Paper PSW-RP-100. Berkeley, CA: Pacific Southwest Forest and Range Experiment Station, Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture; 17 p

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: A new procedure for constructing one-sided truncated sequential t-tests and its application to natural resource sampling are described. Monte Carlo procedures were used to develop a series of one-sided truncated sequential t-tests and the associated approximations to the operating characteristic and average sample number functions. Different truncation points and decision boundary patterns were examined. The fixed sample size t-test and Barnard's open one-sided sequential t-test were compared with the new procedure. The upper one-sided test described can easily be modified to a lower one-sided test.

Keywords: biometrics, sampling, sequential sampling, t-test
