The generalized maximum entropy method of information recovery requires that an analyst provides prior information in the form of finite bounds on the permissible values of the regression coefficients and error values for its implementation. Using a new development in the method of comparative statics, the sensitivity of the resulting coefficient and error estimates to the prior information is investigated. A negative semidefinite matrix reminiscent of the Slutsky-matrix of neoclassical microeconomic theory is shown to characterize the said sensitivity, and an upper bound for the rank of the matrix is derived.
