I use matlab. I think it would be hard to incorporate anything but mostly trivial cases for conjugate priors into a packaged program like stata. That's the problem with subjective beliefs, you can't generalize them.

Quoting "Benjamin M. Craig, Ph.D." <craig@pharmacy.arizona.edu>:

If you are a Bayesian using stata, please respond with raised voice.

Most of my work is frequentist in nature, but I apply Bayesian techniques for some of my more onerous problems. As was mentioned in the fall, "Stata is not much of a vehicle for doing Bayesian things." Should this change?

The paucity of interest in Bayesian techniques, or its appearance, may represent an area of development for stata. Bayesians, if you are out there, I personally would like to how you manage. Maybe stata and its users will develop greater tools if we can show that there is a market.
