Abstract:

A basic problem in conducting either clinical or sequential trials is to determine which or when statistical significance for a predetermined level of alpha has occurred. The consequences of not using Tukeys criterion for k nonoverlapping comparisons are developed. The use of this criterion might be too stringent, however, and an alternative statistic is given.
