Fiducial inference was a form of statistical inference put forward by R A Fisher in an attempt to perform inverse probability without prior probability distributions.

Fisher did not develop fiducial inference substantially and many of the results he did get could also be obtained from Bayesian inference (which Fisher rejected philosophically), often using Jeffreys priors.
