Empirical Bayes prediction intervals in a normal regression model: higher order asymptotics


  • Basu, Ruma
  • Ghosh, J. K.
  • Mukerjee, Rahul


We explore two proposals for finding empirical Bayes prediction intervals under a normal regression model. The coverage probabilities and expected lengths of such intervals are studied and compared via appropriate higher-order asymptotics.
