We address the statistical problem of evaluating R = P(X < Y ), where X and Y are two independent random variables. Bayesian parametric inference about R, based on the marginal posterior density of R, has been widely discussed under various distributional assumptions on X and Y . This classical approach requires both elicitation of a prior on the complete parameter and numerical integration in order to derive the marginal distribution of R. In this paper, we discuss and apply recent advances in Bayesian inference based on higher-order asymptotics and on pseudo-likelihoods, and related matching priors, which allow to perform accurate inference on the parameter of interest only. The proposed approach has the advantages of avoiding the elicitation on the nuisance parameters and the computation of multidimensional integrals.
