    An almost best or an \epsilon-best population is defined as a population with location parameter on a distance not larger than \epsilon (\geq 0) from the best population (with largest value of the location parameter). For the subset selection tables with the relative efficiency of selecting an \epsilon-best population relative to selecting the best population are given. Results are presented for confidence level P* = 0.50, 0.80, 0.90, 0.95 and 0.99; the number of populations k =2(1)15(5)50(10)100(50)300(100)500(250)2000, and \epsilon = 0.2, 0.5, 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0, where P* is the minimal probability of correct selection.
