Difference of means for paired data: Model the mean of the differences or the joint distribution

I'm regularly asked about how to analyze the difference of means for paired data, such as pre-treatment and post-treatment scores (for the same subjects), or, say, blood pressures of spouses, etc. The usual approach is merely to consider the difference...

Posterior distribution of predictions in multiple linear regression

In a previous post I showed how to compute posterior predictions from multiple linear regression inside JAGS. In this post I show how to do it after JAGS, in R.There are trade-offs doing it in JAGS or afterwards in R. If you do it in JAGS, then you kno...

New version of BEST package (Bayesian estimation of two groups)

Mike Meredith has updated the BEST package again! CHANGES in v.0.5.0 (2017-05-28) * 'BESTmcmc' uses 'rjags' directly, instead of 'jagsUI' wrappers. This resolves 'set.seed' issues, but values returned will not be the same as with previous version...
