The common practice is to use vague prior but inferences depend on the degree of vagueness. Pullenayegum (2011) proposed an informed reference prior for between-study heterogeneity of binary outcomes. We employ a model for applying this prior for both primary outcome and summary measure data in Bayesian meta-analysis. We have found the same inference using both primary outcome and summary measure data. This study also suggests that the informed reference prior for between-study heterogeneity represents more relevant conclusion as compared to commonly used prior distributions.<em></em></p><p><em>Dhaka</em><em> Univ.</em><em> J.
