Bayesian analysis 2005.


The deviance information criterion (DIC) introduced by Spiegelhalte&al for model assessment and model comparison is directly inspired by linear and generalised linear models, but it is open to different possible variations in the setting of missing data models, depending in particular on whether or not the missing variables are treated as parameters. In this paper, we reassess the criterion for such models and compare different DIC constructions, testing the behaviour of these various extensions in the cases of mixtures of distributions and random effect models.
