In this paper, we develop the Jeffreys' prior, reference prior and the the probability matching priors for the difference of intraclass correlation coefficients in familial data. e prove the sufficient condition for propriety of posterior distributions. Using marginal posterior distributions under those noninformative priors, we compare posterior quantiles and frequentist coverage probability.
