Bayesian econometrics is a branch of econometrics which applies Bayesian principles to economic modelling. Bayesianism is based on a degree-of-belief interpretation of probability, as opposed to a relative-frequency interpretation.

The Bayesian principle relies on Bayes' theorem which states that the probability of B conditional on A is the ratio of joint probability of A and B divided by.

The coverage ranges from the fundamental concepts and operations of Bayesian inference to analysis of applications in specific econometric problems and the testing of hypotheses and models. Get this from a library. An introduction to Bayesian inference in econometrics.

Christophe Hurlin (University of OrlØans) Bayesian Econometrics J 4 / Bayesian inference is a method of statistical inference in which Bayes' theorem is used to update the probability for a hypothesis as more evidence or information becomes available.

Bayesian inference is an important technique in statistics, and especially in mathematical an updating is particularly important in the dynamic analysis of a sequence of data. J.L. Tobias, in Encyclopedia of Health Economics, Introduction. Bayesian econometrics has become an increasingly popular paradigm for the fitting of economic models, since the early s.

Although Bayesian efforts in economics existed well before this time – perhaps originating in our specific discipline with the pioneering work of Zellner in the early s – Bayesian applied work.
