Fixed-width confidence interval for a lognormal mean
We consider the problem of constructing a fixed-width confidence interval for a lognormal mean. We give a Birnbaum and Healy type two-stage procedure to construct such a confidence interval. We discuss some asymptotic properties of the procedure. A three-stage procedure and an accelerated sequential procedure are also given for the comparison of efficiency among these three multistage methodologies.
