Abstract.    For a family of non-regular distributions with a location parameter including the uniform and truncated distributions, the stochastic expansion of the Bayes estimator is given and the asymptotic lower bound for the Bayes risk is obtained and shown to be sharp. Some examples are also given.

Key words and phrases:    Loss function, Bayes risk, Bayes estimator, lower bound, uniform distribution, truncated distributions.
