Sequential analysis is a method of statistical inference in which the number of observations is not determined in advance of the experiment. This statistical method has been applied to radiation measurement. The case considered was that of determining if a preset limit was exceeded or fallen short of. Sequential procedures were compared with the conventional statistical procedure for counting and found to be more efficient in the time required to decide if a limit was exceeded or fallen short of.
