Statistics comes in two main flavors: frequentist and Bayesian. For historical and technical reasons, frequentist statistics have long been the most widely used, and remain the standard choice in empirical software engineering. In recent years, however, Bayesian statistics have slowly become more prominent while, at the same time, statistical practices commonly associated with frequentist statistics have been criticized because of technical and methodological shortcomings. This paper argues that Bayesian techniques can bring benefits to software engineering data analysis, and they can help raise the quality and impact of empirical research in this area.
