**[BAYES] set clevel** -- Set default credible level

__Syntax__

**set** **clevel** *#* [**,** __perm__**anently**]

*#* is any number between 10.00 and 99.99 and may be specified with at most
two digits after the decimal point.

__Description__

**set** **clevel** specifies the default credible level for credible intervals
for all Bayesian commands (see **[BAYES] bayesian commands**) that report
credible intervals. The initial value is 95, meaning 95% credible
intervals.

__Option__

**permanently** specifies that in addition to making the change right now,
the **clevel** setting be remembered and become the default setting when
you invoke Stata.

__Remarks__

To change the level of credible intervals reported by a particular
command, you need not reset the default credible level. All commands
that report credible intervals have a **clevel(***#***)** option. When you do not
specify the option, the credible intervals are calculated for the default
level set by **set** **clevel** or for 95% if you have not reset **set** **clevel**.

__Note concerning estimation commands__

All Bayesian estimation commands can redisplay results when they are
typed without arguments. The width of the reported credible intervals is
a property of the display, not the estimation, for example,

**. sysuse auto**
**. bayesmh mpg, likelihood(normal(1)) prior({mpg:_cons},**
**uniform(15,25))**
(output appears)

**. bayesmh, clevel(90)**
(output reappears, this time with 90% credible intervals)

__Examples__

**. set clevel 90**

**. set clevel 99, permanently**
