Presentation 3F6. The Role of Exchangeability as a Basic Concept in Introductory Courses on Bayesian Statistics

Pilar Iglesias (Chile)
Sergio Weschler (Brazil)


Presentation Abstract

This talk will show how exchangeability of binary (0-1) variables and Bayes' formula may be used to introduce inference in finite populations in introductory statistics courses. As an example, determination of sample size is considered to show how the framework joins three key concepts: exchangeability, inference, and decision-making.
