Abstract:

The tables presented in the publication owe their existence to the need of evaluators of military equipment for confidence intervals on binomial distributions of small sample sizes. These tables offer sample sizes from 2 to 25 inclusive and confidence coefficients from 50 to 99 inclusive. To use the tables, it is assumed that an experiment has been conducted using a random sample of size n, r of which have exhibited a specified property. A confidence coefficient must be agreed upon this confidence coefficient establishes the certainty which one is willing, or able, to place on the estimation of the relative size of that portion of the sampled population which exhibits the specified property. Selecting the table of the proper confidence coefficient, enter the column headed by the proper size n and move down the column until the row marked by r on the left is reached. The two numbers in that row are the boundary values of the confidence limit on the probability of the specified property appearing in any one trial.
