A decision-theoretic approach to interval estimation
Under an appropriate loss function, interval estimation may be regarded as a Bayesian decision-making procedure in which the objective is to find an interval that minimizes expected loss. For various loss functions, the behavior of the optimal interval is investigated, a comparison is made with the usual non-decision-theoretic interval estimates, and applications and examples are discussed. © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
