Stopping Rules in Balanced Allocation Problems: Exact and Asymptotic Distributions

Published

Author(s)

Andrew L. Rukhin

Abstract

The properties of balanced randomization procedures for several treatments under a general (non-uniform) assignment are reviewed. The truncated multinomial design and the random allocation rule are comparer in terms of selection bias and accidental bias. The distributions of target fulfillment instants are determined.
