Bayesian Analysis in Random Coefficient m-group Regression.
Fortney, William G.; Miller, Robert B.
Bayesian analysis of an m-group model is considered. A convenient stage III prior is proposed, and cases when the posterior distributions take on a simple form are exhibited. The behavior of various point estimators of the linear parameters of the model are explored in a Monte Carlo study. In the simple model considered, the O'Hagan estimator usually displays smaller mean squared error than the competing estimators. (Author/RL)
