Abstract

In this paper, we propose to make Bayesian inferences for the parameters of the Lomax distribution using non-informative priors, namely the (dependent and independent) Jeffreys prior and the reference prior. We assess Bayesian estimation through a Monte Carlo study with 10,000 simulated datasets. In order to evaluate the possible impact of prior specification on estimation, two criteria were considered: the mean relative error and the mean square error. An application on a real dataset illustrates the developed procedures. (C) 2019 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. (AU)
