In this paper, we define fuzzy interval data and introduce an approximate method for Bayesian selection of jndependent variables in linear regression models by using Zadeh's probability concept of fuzzy events. It is important which combination ef independent variables is best when we apply the regression analysis. In this paper, we call the data whose boundaries are vague the fuzzy interval data. Here, dependent variables are observed as fuzzy interval data, so we show the posterior

But, the method with direct usage of the membership functions of fuzzy interval data is insuMcient from a viewpoint of calculation. However, our proposed method's treatment of the middle points of rnembership functions as the representative points can solve such a problem. As a result, even if we obtain fuzzy dependent variables, we can formulate an approximate selection of independent variables which is not so far different from the conventiona] Bayesian selection of independent variables. In realistic situations, we do not always treat ideal symmetrical membership functions. Therefore, we carry out the computer simulations under realistic situations which do not satisfy completely the condition of the symmetry of trapezeidal membership functions, Consequently, we can show the practicability of our method.
