Abstract : Let X and Y have a continuous bivariate distribution H(x,y) having marginals F and G. The author is interested in setting up a confidence interval of specified width 2l and specified coverage probability 1-alpha for the parameter p = P(X < Y). Sequential procedures are proposed when H(x,y) is bivariate normal having unknown covariance matrix, X and Y are independent and, F and G are unknown, and X,Y are dependent and the distribution of Z = X-Y is unknown.
