Nonparametric Applications of Bayesian Inference
AbstractThis article evaluates the usefulness of a nonparametric approach to Bayesian inference by presenting two applications. Our first application considers an educational choice problem. We focus on obtaining a predictive distribution for earnings corresponding to various levels of schooling. This predictive distribution incorporates the parameter uncertainty, so that it is relevant for decision making under uncertainty in the expected utility framework of microeconomics. The second application is to quantile regression. Our point here is to examine the potential of the nonparametric framework to provide inferences without relying on asymptotic approximations. Unlike in the first application, the standard asymptotic normal approximation turns out not to be a good guide.
