Comparison of Evidential Theories
We start from the view that the purpose of statistical theory is to explain and guide what we choose to present as statistical evidence, i.e., what data and reasoning should cause us to adopt certain conclusions. We arrive at the position that there are kinds of statistical evidence, each of which lends a different explanatory insight and none of which is perfect. The explanatory models which we consider—along with their criteria—appear in Table 14.1.
