Abstract

A function of R(L), named a rate-risk function, is introduced in the field of statistical decision theory. It specifies the minimal permissible rate R at which information about underlying uncertainties must be conveyed to the decision maker in order to achieve the prescribed value L of the Bayes risk. Fundamental properties are also clarified for the rate-risk function.
