Introduction to Bayesian Statistics


David Rindskopf
CUNY Graduate Center


If you want to be able to say "There is a 95 percent probability that the mean difference is in this interval" without being ridiculed by frequentist statisticians, you need to be a Bayesian. Bayesians put probability distributions on all parameters. Further, they don't require you analyze data as if you're totally ignorant of what the results might be; they put prior distributions on these parameters reflecting existing knowledge.
