[…] off) and model parameter separately., second, we used a hierarchical bayesian estimation approach fitting all data of all participants and sessions using markov chain monte carlo (mcmc) sampling via just another gibbs sampler (jags) []. individual choice data were modeled using equations 2 and 3 (see above). however, single subject parameters were drawn from group-level normal […]

[…] broad and perhaps less quantitative audience, as well as to spur the use of quantitative methods in data limited situations., three modeling approaches are presented here: a bayesian approach using just another gibbs sampler (jags) (r package: rjags []), and two generalized linear mixed models (glmm), penalized quasi-likelihood (pql) (r package: mass []), and “glmer” using the laplace […]

[…] to) 4 adjacent age groups together with (ai,α) itself., the posterior distributions of the parameters were estimated via markov chain monte carlo simulation []. the inference was implemented using just another gibbs sampler (jags) [] within the r statistical environment (r core team, 2013) using the rjags package [] with 100 000 iterations for each of the eight polymod countries independently […]

[…] (mcmc) simulation converge reliably to similar posterior estimates (koller and friedman , p. 509)., to compute and analyze the forecasting distribution, we use the statistical software r () and just another gibbs sampler (jags), a freely available program that can be deployed for bayesian analysis (plummer ). we use the r-packages rjags (plummer ) and r2jags (su and yajima, ) to interface […]

[…] disease prevalence, sensitivity and specificity of the screening test modalities were then estimated from this unobserved variable. statistical analysis was carried out using stata 13 software and just another gibbs sampler (jags) software., the characteristics of the 5004 women included in the study are given in . vast majority of them had prior screening with pap smear. a third […]
