Xxxviii Comments on Cox (1957) Statistical Frontiers D. V. Lindley Guide books do not ordinarily concern themselves with the politics or philosophy of the countries they are describing and tourists, save in exceptional cases, ignore the manner of government. In this respect, Dr. Cox really is a tourist, not mentioning the philosophy of statistics. In 1956, this was reasonable, since Savage, the revolutionary text, had only just appeared. Jeffreys lay unread and de Finetti was still only available in Italian.

Do you want the mean difference between treatments averaged over these particular areas with narrow confidence limits, or do you want mean differences averaged over a population of areas of which these areas are a sample with broad confidence limits? So far, we have visited almost exclusively the parametric inference countries. Let us take a glimpse at the frontier in the non parametric inference territory. When the experimenter does not know the form of his population distribution, or knows that it is not normal, then he may either transform his data or use methods of analysis called distribution free or non parametric methods.

N - x)! pX(l - pr x (0 < p < 1), which is maximized when p is chosen to be xln. Now, if a uniform distribution on (0, 1) is taken to be the prior distribution of p, then Bayesian analysis would yield as the posterior density of p. But if we parameterize this Bernoulli process in a different way, say, in terms of e with sine = 2p - 1, then the likelihood function of e is L(e) = n! (n - x)! + siner (1 2x - siner x 2n x ( -~
