Hi all,

[image] here's a paper that discusses the funky issue with fixed effects versus random effects.

In particular, who can come up with a quantitative relevant measure of the difference any estimator makes if you have two model alternatives?

One thing is of course to judge if estimate A is closer to the true value that estimator B, or if its variance is smaller, but another is to judge practical relevance. I was told that it is the latter that is of interest to the author. :-D

Pass or fail!

The rise of biometry in this 20th century,
like that of geometry in the 3rd century before Christ,
seems to mark out one of the great ages or critical periods
in the advance of the human understanding.    R.A. Fisher
