Bayesians are frequentists. What I mean is, the Bayesian prior distribution corresponds to the frequentist sample space: it’s the set of problems for which a particular statistical model or procedure will be applied.

Let's get clear about who the "math signs" are referring...

The sample size is […] The post Chasing the noi...
