Bayesian estimation of the intraclass correlation coefficients in the mixed linear model. (English) Zbl 0937.62026
The method of determining Bayesian estimators for special ratios of variance components (the relative contribution of each source of variation to the total variance – a generalization of the intraclass correlation coefficient) is presented. The exact posterior distribution for these ratios of variance components is obtained. The approximate posterior mean is also derived.
