Integrating information beyond data: How to obtain informative priors – Duco Veen and Marthe Egberts

Bayesian estimation with (weakly) informative priors can be a solution for small sample size situations. Naïve use of Bayesian statistics, in contrast, can actually cause harm. In this workshop we show where and how to find additional information to specify (weakly) informative priors for your models. Amongst others, we discuss natural parameter constraints and the elicitation of expert knowledge.
