Abstract : A recurring experimental problem is the comparison of several binomial populations to see if their underlying parameter values theta sub 1 are equal. Here a Bayesian attack is made on this problem. Exact tests are possible but difficult, but an approximate procedure using the multinormal distribution may be employed. Some examples are provided.
