Degree of caution in inference

26 September 2011

D. R. Bickel, “Controlling the degree of caution in statistical inference with the Bayesian and frequentist approaches as opposite extremes,” Technical Report, Ottawa Institute of Systems Biology, arXiv:1109.5278 (2011). Full preprint

This paper’s framework of statistical inference is intended to facilitate the development of new methods to bridge the gap between the frequentist and Bayesian approaches. Three concrete examples illustrate how such intermediate methods can leverage strengths of the two extreme approaches.
