Bayesian Analysis of Binary Data Subject to Misclassiication

Abstract

This paper considers estimation of success probabilities of categorical binary data subject to mis-classiication errors from the Bayesian point of view. It has been shown by Bross (1954) that sample proportions are in general biased estimates. This bias is a function of the amount of misclassiication and can be substantial. Tenenbein (1970) proposed to… (More)
