    Limit theorems are obtained for the numbers of observations in a random sample that fall within a left-hand or right-hand neighbourhood of the kth order statistic. The index k can be fixed, or tend to infinity as the sample size increases unboundedly. In essence, the proofs are applications of the classical Poisson and De Moivre–Laplace theorems.
