Hi Tausif,
  You are probably talking about two different things. You can obviously get the emperical bayesian individual esimates using NONMEM. But performing a Bayesian Estimation is a different approach which utlizes prior information and current data to generate posterior distribution of the parameter estimates.
  There is an excellent pharmacometerics learning tool on which provides theory and examples on population analysis and might be very helpful to you.
  Hope this helps

      Dear Group members,
  I have recently started using NONMEM for population analysis.
  I need you help in understanding Bayesian estimation using NONMEM.
  Can any body provide me a sample control stream along with data file (Excel or csv format) and also explain the output.
  I use Visual NM to run NONMEM version V.
  Thanking you in anticipation.
