Consider the observation of n iid realizations of an experiment with d ≥ 2 possible outcomes, which corresponds to a single observation of a multinomial distribution Md(n,p) where p is an unknown discrete distribution on {1, . . . , d}. In many applications, the construction of a confidence region for p when n is small is crucial. This concrete challenging problem has a long history. It is well known that the confidence regions built from asymptotic statistics do not have good coverage when n… CONTINUE READING
