Abstract : An estimation of the parameters for the first type (or exponential type) of asymptotic distribution, this paper deals with (1) the best linear unbiased estimate for n < or = 6 (largest value) and the case of missing data, (2) the nearly best linear unbiased estimate for n < or = 25 (n = 1 (1) 10 (5) 25) with all possible cases of singly and doubly censored samples, and (3) estimating the percentage points.
