Bayesian inference for random partitions
MetadataShow full item record
I consider statistical inference for clustering, that is the arrangement of experimental units in homogeneous groups. In particular, I discuss clustering for multivariate binary outcomes. Binary data is not very informative, making it less meaningful to proceed with traditional (deterministic) clustering methods. Meaningful inference needs to account for and report the considerable uncertainty related with any reported cluster arrangement. I review and implement an approach that was proposed in the recent literature.
