It is pointed out that a uniform distribution on probability n-tuples is not necessarily the best distribution to use in calculating an average entropy. The noninformative prior of Bayesian statistics and certain-distributions which arise in differential-geometry approaches to statistics are other candidates. The mean and variance of the entropy are calculated when probability n-tuples are distributed according to these distributions
