- It would be great to have at least one example where the assumptions required for the conditionality principle are probably met, and one where the assumptions clearly aren't met. -- 18:09, 12 August 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by RedHouse18 (talk • contribs)
The article incorrectly implies that the conditionality principle first appeared in 1962. Sir David Cox emphasized the principle in an earlier paper:
Cox, D.R. (1958) "Some problems connected with statistical inference," Annals of Mathematical Statistics 29, 357-372.
Fisher introduced the idea behind what we now call the conditionality principle. I will correct the wording of the page accordingly.
