TITLE: | Proof of order-two asymptotic efficiency of the Chow-Robbins sequential procedure to construct a fixed-width confidence interval for the unknown mean of a normal distribution with unknown variance |

**Abstract**

We will show that the Chow-Robbins sequential procedure to construct a fixed-width confidence interval for the unknown mean of a normal distribution with unknown variance is asymptotically (as the length of the confidence interval shrinks to zero) efficient of the second order.
