Sample sizes for improved binomial confidence intervals

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

33 Scopus citations


Sample size equations are reviewed for different types of confidence intervals on a binomial success probability. Based on recommendations for improved binomial confidence limits given by Brown et al. (Statist. Sci. 16 (2001) 101), the intervals expand upon or enhance the traditional Wald-type interval. Some useful sample size relations appear.
