Abstract
In this paper we give a decisiontheoretic oriented, objective Bayesian answer to the problems
of point estimating and sharp hypothesis testing about the correlation coefficient of a bivariate
Normal population. Under this view both problems are deemed closely related and thus a coherent
answer is developed. Comparisons with frequentist results are given and an alternative
interpretation of the maximum likelihood estimator is found.
