Abstract : Several procedures for ranking populations according to the quantile of a given order have been discussed in the literature. These procedures deal with continuous distributions. This paper deals with the problem of selecting a population with the largest alphaquantile from k or = 2 finite populations, where the size of each population is known. A selection rule is given based on the sample quantiles, where the samples are drawn without replacement. A formula for the minimum probability of a correct selection for the given rule, for a certain configuration of the population alphaquantiles, is given in terms of the sample numbers. (Author)
