Abstract : A statistic is introduced which is based on order-statistics and has properties analogous to Student's t. In addition to simplicity of computation, it has the property that it can be used in some situations in which t can not be calculated, e.g. when part of the sample has been 'censored'. The limiting distribution of this statistic has been obtained and tabulated. Work on a tabulation for small samples is in progress. (Author)
