Inference and Prediction for a General Order Statistic Model with Unknown Population Size

  title={Inference and Prediction for a General Order Statistic Model with Unknown Population Size},
  author={Adrian E. Raftery},
Suppose that the first n order statistics from a random sample of N positive random variables.areobserved, whereN isunknown; A Bayes empiriCal Bayes approach to inference is presented. This permits the comparison ofcompeting, perhaps non-nested, models in a natural way, and also provides easily implemented inference and prediction procedures which avoid the difficulties of non-Bayesian methods. Applications to three software reliability data sets indicate that the much-used exponential order… CONTINUE READING
