A general procedure is found for constructing good unbiased linear estimators of the location and scale parameters of a distribution for use with an uncensored sample of size n. It is presupposed that the coefficients of the best linear estimates are available for an uncensored sample of size m < n for the distribution under investigation. The coefficients of the proposed estimators are obtained as linear combinations of these with the aid of tabled values of the hypergeometric probability function.
