# Bayesian verses frequentist statistics?

Asked by tfahland (3)

I had a question about these 2 forms of statistics. Bayesian seems to be used alot more and I understand that due to computing power. But this is math, isn’t one method right and the other wrong for certain cases, and its not a matter of choice. Isn’t frequentist essentially a simplification of bayesian (ie, neglecting the prior?). Thanks.
