And the wise-guys and yobs payed their tanners and bobs
All thinking - she can’t always win!

Theorem 4 Assume condition (i) of Lemma 1, that π(E(θ|yobs )) > 0, and the kernel K (·) corresponds to a random variable with mean zero.

E(L(θ, ˆθ; A)|yobs) − trace(AΣ) = E(( ˜θ − ˆθ)T A( ˜θ − ˆθ)|yobs ), where ˜θ = E(θ|yobs), the mean under the true posterior, which equals S (yobs) for the summary statistics under discussion.

Comment: Quantifying the Fraction of Missing Information for Hypothesis Testing in Statistical and Genetic Studies
If we denote the two potential expanded data sets as Yco,m and Yco,i with m and i standing for markers and individuals, we can compute the fraction of information between Yob and Yco,m , and between Yob and Yco,i , potentially using RI1 and RI0 proposed in the NMK paper.
Comment: Quantifying the Fraction of Missing Information for Hypothesis Testing in Statistical and Genetic Studies
Let RIy (Yco , Yob ; p, p0) be the empirical fraction of information regarding the difference between p and p0 , for a set of Yco with only Yob observed (or the ratio of the lod scores between p and p0 derived using the observed data and the potential complete data).
Comment: Quantifying the Fraction of Missing Information for Hypothesis Testing in Statistical and Genetic Studies
Mathematically, our key identity (13) requires both θ1 and θ2 to be fixed known constants (given the observed data), so one cannot take θ1 = θco , which would be a random variable, even after conditioning on Yob .
Rejoinder: Quantifying the Fraction of Missing Information for Hypothesis Testing in Statistical and Genetic Studies
Given this setup, we can use RI1 to measure the loss of information due to censoring by setting {Yob = Dcens , Yco = Dfull}, using our generic notation; we believe Doss’s first reported RI1 value, 0.987, is for this purpose.
Rejoinder: Quantifying the Fraction of Missing Information for Hypothesis Testing in Statistical and Genetic Studies
We can also measure the loss of information from using the partial likelihood approach compared with the full-likelihood approach, which corresponds to setting {Yob = Dpart , Yco = Dcens }.
Rejoinder: Quantifying the Fraction of Missing Information for Hypothesis Testing in Statistical and Genetic Studies
We then obviously can ask what is the relative information in Yob = Dcens compared with the augmented sample Yco = Daug cens .

Bayesian inference is typically focused on the posterior distribution p(θ|yobs ) ∝ p(yobs |θ)p(θ) of a parameter vector θ ∈ Θ ⊆ Rq , q ≥ 1, representing the updating of one’s prior beliefs, p(θ), through the likelihood (model) function, p(yobs |θ), having observed data yobs ∈ Y .
