Prior viability assessment for Bayesian analysis.

Goldstein, M. and Seheult, A. H. (2008) 'Prior viability assessment for Bayesian analysis.', Journal of statistical planning and inference., 138 (5). pp. 1271-1286.


We address the problem of determining whether the cost of a proposed Bayesian analysis is likely to be justified by the potential benefit. A method is described for identifying the likely order of magnitude benefits from the analysis, and this approach is applied to an example concerning trading on the sugar market.
