A Remark on the Interpretation of Pooling Results

A multinomial distribution (-1, π1), (0, π2), (1, π3), π1 + π2 + π3 = 1 is observed. Suppose that n1 values -1, n2 values 0 and n3 values 1 (n = n1 + n2 + n3) were observed. The construction of the confidence region for the vector (π1, π2, π3) is given. Theoretical considerations are illustrated by an example of the results of a pool.
