Research Abstract 
1. We got a condition which implies the nonexistence of parametric statistical procedures with bounded risk. Many examples for which such a condition is satisfied are considered. 2. Under an asymmetric loss function we considered if there exists a fixedsample procedure with bounded risk for a locationscale family. If there does not exist such a procedure, we constructed a procedure by employing a twostage procedure. 3. We consider the problem of constructing a fixedsize confidence region for a linear function of mean vectors of κmultinormal populations, where all covariance matrices are completely unknown. A twostage procedure is proposed to construct such a confidence region. It is shown that the proposed twostage procedure is consistent and its asymptotic property for the expected sample size is also given. A Monte Carlo simulation study is given for an illustration. 4. The problem of constructing an estimator with al risk bounded by a preassigned number is considered for a linear function of mean vectors of κmultinormal distributions when covariance matrices are fully unknown. We provide a new twostage procedure which does improve the previous one. The procedure is shown to be asymptotically efficient. 5. The problem of constructing a set of fixedwidth simultaneous confidence intervals for the treatmentcontrol differences of means is considered for several independent normal populations with a common unknown variance. A twostage procedure is developed for such inference and its asymptotic characteristics are studied up to the second order. Finally; performances of the proposed twostage procedure are compared for both small and moderate sample sizes in several cases.
