Abstract : Some work on selection and ranking procedures for binomial populations are described. The procedures fall in the following two categories (1) procedures for selecting a subset containing the best population or all those populations that are better than a standard (2) procedures for selecting the best. Order statistics from the binomial distribution are discussed and some new tables of moments and cumulative distribution function of these order statistics are discribed. (Author)
