Meditation on Statistical Method

J. V. Cummingham

(1947)
 

Plato, despair!
We prove by norms
How numbers bear
Empiric forms,

How random wrong
Will average right
If time be long
And error slight,

But in our hearts
Hyperbole
Curves and departs
To infinity

Error is boundless.
Nor hope nor doubt,
Though both be groundless
Will average out.

 

Samples and Inference

Rob Gregory

(2000)
 
A drop of liquid,
Taken from the bucket,
Tells what the bucket holds.
Maybe.
