    Can a frequentist 'sampling distribution' be interpretted as a bayesian 'prior'?

    intresting; so like a, "did it even matter in the first place" demonstration

    Can a frequentist 'sampling distribution' be interpretted as a bayesian 'prior'?

    That explanation makes sense. So is there a "class" of analyses that supersedes both Bayesian and Frequentist methods? Interesting! Is that standard practice? It seems like an advantage of frequentists sampling distribution is that it is empirically motivated <-- but if priors were empirically...

    Can a frequentist 'sampling distribution' be interpretted as a bayesian 'prior'?

    good point. though, I'm curious if -- disregarding their fundamental beliefs about the philosophical definition of "probability"-- there is a way to demonstrate frequency nhst tests as a special case of bayesian analysis with a particular choice of prior (the sampling distribution).

    Can a frequentist 'sampling distribution' be interpretted as a bayesian 'prior'?

    I've read quite a few posts comparing/contrasting bayesian and frequentist statistics. But there's one thing that I'm still struggling to understand. Based on the following premises (which I think are correct): Premise 1: A 'sampling distribution' of a statistic (e.g., a sample mean) is a piece...
