Stata 18 offers several new features for Bayesian analysis. With the new bma suite, you do not need to choose just one model for your analysis—you can borrow information from many models. bma performs Bayesian model averaging to account for model uncertainty in your analysis. Use bmaregress to find out which predictors are important. Perform model choice, inference, and prediction. Use many postestimation commands to explore influential models, model complexity, model fit and predictive performance, sensitivity analysis to the assumptions about importance of models and predictors, and more.

In StataNow™, the new bayes: qreg command fits Bayesian quantile regressions, and the new likelihood option asymlaplaceq() of bayesmh allows you to fit even more Bayesian quantile models, including simultaneous and multilevel quantile regressions.
