The frog surveying problem in WinBUGS

Code for analysing the frog surveying problem in WinBUGS is given in Box 1.5. A Bayesian model specified in WinBUGS has the four components of a Bayesian analysis:

• prior distributions for the parameters being estimated;

• a model that relates the parameters to the data; and

• the posterior distributions for the parameters.
