About this book

The goal of this book is to provide an accessible approach to Bayesian computing and data analysis, with an emphasis on the interpretation of real data sets. Following in the tradition of the successful first edition, this book aims to make a wide range of statistical modeling applications accessible using tested code that can be readily adapted to the reader's own applications. The second edition has been thoroughly reworked and updated to take account of advances in the field. A new set of worked examples is included. The coverage of statistical modeling using WinBUGS continues in the new edition although some examples using R and MLWIN are also introduced to broaden appeal and for completeness of coverage.

Media reviews

This text is ideal for researchers in applied statistics, medical sciences, public health and the social sciences, who will benefit greatly from the examples and applications featured. The book will also appeal to graduate students of applied statistics, data analysis and Bayesian methods, and will provide a great source of reference for both researchers and students.
