Full-text: Open access

Abstract

To measure the impact of Bayesian reasoning, this paper investigates the occurrence of two words, "Bayes" and "Bayesian," since 1970 in journal articles in a variety of disciplines, with a focus on economics and statistics. The growth in statistics is documented, but the growth in economics is largely confined to economic theory/mathematical economics rather than econometrics.
