The foreign Statistical Institute was once based in 1885 and is accordingly one of many world's oldest overseas clinical societies. the sector of facts continues to be increasing swiftly and possesses a wealthy number of purposes in lots of parts of human task reminiscent of technological know-how, executive, enterprise, undefined, and daily affairs. as a result, the social gathering of the Institute's centenary in 1985 is of substantial curiosity not just to statisticians but in addition extra generally to the foreign clinical neighborhood. As a part of its centennial get together making plans the Institute made up our minds to submit a quantity of papers representing the immensely wide variety of pursuits encompassed via information in its overseas context, seen either from a ancient and from a latest perspective. We have been lucky in securing the prone of Anthony Atkinson and Stephen Fienberg as Editors of this quantity: they've got labored tough over a interval of numerous years to place jointly a such a lot interesting selection of papers. On behalf of the Institute it truly is my friendly accountability to thank them and the authors for his or her contributions. J. DURBIN, President foreign Statistical Institute Preface The papers during this quantity have been ready to aid have fun the centenary of the overseas Statistical Institute. through the lSI's first a hundred years information has matured, either as a systematic self-discipline and as a career, in ways in which the lSI's founders couldn't probably have imagined.

Thus we can see that for the development of statistics the main emphasis should be placed on the search for important practical problems. Acknowledgements The author is grateful to A. P. Dawid and T. Leonard for helpful comments. The reference to the work by Williams on Bayesian conditionalization was made possible by the comment of Dawid. The presentation of the paper has been significantly improved by the comments of the editors and reviewers. This work was partly supported by the United States Army under Contract No.
