Abstract : Associated populations have probability distributions with subsets of parameters in common. Likelihood estimators may be obtained from the combined information resulting from samples from each of the associated populations. Asymptotic theory of likelihood estimators and likelihood ratio tests are reported and four examples are given. (Modified author abstract)
