1—In a previous paper*, dealing with the importance of properties of sufficiency in the statistical theory of small samples, attention was mainly confined to the theory of estimation. In the present paper the structure of small sample tests, whether these are related to problems of estimation and fiducial distributions, or are of the nature of tests of goodness of fit, is considered further.
