Comment: How should indirect evidence be used? (English) Zbl 1328.62047
Summary: Indirect evidence is crucial for successful statistical practice. Sometimes, however, it is better used informally. Future efforts should be directed toward understanding better the connection between statistical methods and scientific problems.
