The stats-in-action mini-symposia on methods involving statistics are designed to showcase the variety of ways in which Griffith researchers and friends have put statistics to good use, in practice, to support an evidence-based approach to research.
This is the second and final of two mini-symposia to consider all facets of Bayesian stats-in-action. The common theme is how a Bayesian approach has made a difference in helping to address a research problem. From a wide range of statistical backgrounds, all researchers are willing to talk about their experiences, good or bad.
The Bayesian statistical models and computation discussed here are not necessarily novel, focussing on actual analysis, reporting or publishing experiences, and future plans.
