Abstract:

The paper describes a double sampling scheme to estimate with at least a given precision the mean of a variate whose variance has two components one of which is unknown. Although the procedure is described almost entirely in terms of a particular problem quality control of net weights, it may be applied in a more general situation. The consequences of using either the mean square error or the range to estimate variance are investigated. Author
