Bayesian Elicitation Diagnostics
AbstractOne elicitation diagnostic identifies a family of prior distributions that are so diffuse that they are practically equivalent to the "completely" diffuse prior. Another elicitation diagnostic identifies a family of prior distributions that concentrate enough mass in the neighborhood of zero that they are practically equivalent to the dogmatic prior that sets a parameter exactly equal to zero. If either question thus posed can be answered in the affirmative then there is no need to go to the expense of a more accurate elicitation of the prior distribution.
