Parametric covariance matrix modeling in Bayesian panel regression
Abstract: The full Bayesian treatment of error component models
typically relies on data augmentation to produce the required inference.
Never stricly necessary a direct approach is always possible though not
necessarily practical. The mechanics of direct sampling are outlined and a
template for including model uncertainty is described. The needed tools,
relying on various Markov chain Monte Carlo techniques, are developed and
direct sampling, with and without effect selection, is illustrated.
