AB - Too much current statistical work takes a superficial view of the
client's research question, adopting techniques which have a solid
history, a sound mathematical basis or readily available software,
but without considering in depth whether the questions being answered
are in fact those which should be asked. Examples, some familiar and
others less so, are given to illustrate this assertion. It is clear
that establishing the mapping from the client's domain to a
statistical question is one of the most difficult parts of a
statistical analysis. It is a part in which the responsibility is
shared by both client and statistician. A plea is made for more
research effort to go in this direction and some suggestions are made
for ways to tackle the problem.
