Abstract

It is frequently necessary to combine the information provided by summary statistics for different observation sets, particularly in the context of group decision processes. Problems arise when there are unidentified observations that overlap, that is, belong to more than one set. This article discusses the handling of these problems in relation to a Normal example when the exact extent of overlap is known.
