Abstract

In this paper we give necessary conditions and sufficient conditions for a test to be locally unbiased, we define local admissibility and we characterize local admissibility in hypothesis testing problems with simple null hypotheses. Applications are presented involving same-sign alternatives, ordered alternatives and independence testing of several variables.
