Abstract

Methods for the evaluation of evidence in the form of measurements by means of the likelihood ratio are becoming more widespread. There is a paucity of methods for the evaluation of evidence in the form of counts by means of the likelihood ratio. Two suggestions for such methods are described. Examples of their performance are illustrated in the context of a problem in forensic phonetics. There is discussion of the problems particular to the evaluation of evidence for discrete data, with suggestions for further work.
