Checking for Prior-Data Conßict with Hierarchically SpeciÞed Priors

Priors are often speciÞed component-wise. This may entail placing independent priors on parameter components or specifying the prior in a sequential or hierarchical fashion. We consider methods for checking for the source of any prior-data conßict in the individually speciÞed components of the prior.
