Bayesian econometric methods have enjoyed an increase in popularity in recent years. Econometricians, empirical economists, and policymakers are increasingly making use of Bayesian methods. This handbook is a single source for researchers and policymakers wanting to learn about Bayesianmethods in specialized fields, and for graduate students seeking to make the final step from textbook learning to the research frontier. It contains contributions by leading Bayesians on the latest developments in their specific fields of expertise. The volume provides broad coverage of the application of Bayesian econometrics in the major fields of economics and related disciplines, including macroeconomics, microeconomics, finance, and marketing. It reviews the state of the art in Bayesian econometric methodology, with chapters on posteriorsimulation and Markov chain Monte Carlo methods, Bayesian nonparametric techniques, and the specialized tools used by Bayesian time series econometricians such as state space models and particle filtering. It also includes chapters on Bayesian principles and methodology.

Editorial Reviews

"This Handbook is an excellent piece of scholarly work that displays the full power of the Bayesian method. All chapters, whilst reasonably self-contained, also serve as springboards to the broader literature, with extensive referencing being a feature of all. Access to specialized computercode is provided in some cases, serving to aid in the wider dissemination and use of the paradigm." --Gael Martin, The Econometrics Journal
