An approach alternative to the binomial UMPU test
We consider a test based on a possible modification of the inverse binomial sampling procedure which has the same size and power as the binomial UMPU test. The proposed procedure leads to a considerable saving in trial size as compared to the fixed trial size binomial two-sided test procedure. We carry out a simulation study to evaluate the performance of the proposed methodology and compare it with a natural competitor.
