Charts are presented which can be used to simplify estimation of μ and σ in the case of sampling from a singly truncated normal distribution when (a) the point of truncation and the number of observations in the truncated portion are known, (b) the number of observations in the truncated portion is not known. A somewhat different iteration procedure for case (a) than given by other writers is suggested and an example is given.
