In a hypothetical, infinite sequence of independent repetitions of the whole experiment 35LogicofInferential Separation, Ancillarity and Sufficiency the estimate u of p would follow the distribution with probability function 1 . 1 u- p cp(u ~ p) + —-y (1) lOM 10 where cp is the density of N{0,1). However, the precision in the estimation of p provided by the one experiment actually performed is described not by (1) but by either (p(u — p) or (p[(u — ¿¿)/10]/10, depending on which of the two instruments was in fact used.

Suppose the object is to test the hypothesis that the odds ratio (2) Pl I P2 1 - p j \ - p2 has a particular value, {¡/0 say, the main possibility being, of course, corresponds to px = p2.
