This article, produced as a result of the Symposium on Statistical Inference, is an introduction to the literature on the function of expertise, judgment, and choice in the practice of statistics and scientific research. In particular, expert judgment plays a critical role in conducting Frequentist hypothesis tests and Bayesian models, especially in selection of appropriate prior distributions for model parameters. The subtlety of interpreting results is also discussed. Finally, external… Expand
