A Catalog of Noninformative Priors

Ruoyong Yang and James O. Berger

A variety of methods of deriving noninformative priors have been developed, and applied to a wide variety of statistical models. In this paper we provide a catalog of many of the resulting priors, and list known properties of the priors. Emphasis is given to reference priors and the Jeffreys prior, although other approaches are also considered. Postscript File (687kB)
