Marginal summary statistics for multiple MCMC chains

Description

Calculates summary statistics of the output of the MCMC algorithm for multiple parameters. Results are given in calendar years (BC/AD).

Usage

multi_marginal_statistics(
  data,
  position = 1:ncol(data),
  level = 0.95,
  round_to = 0
)

Arguments

data

Data frame containing the output of the MCMC algorithm.

position

Numeric vector containing the positions of the columns corresponding to the MCMC chains of interest, or a vector of column names.

level

Probability corresponding to the level of confidence used for the credible interval and the highest posterior density region.

round_to

Integer indicating the number of decimal places.

Value

A data frame where the rows correspond to the chains of interest and columns to the following statistics:

mean

The mean of the MCMC chain.

sd

The standard deviation of the MCMC chain.

min

Minimum value of the MCMC chain;

q1

First quantile of the MCMC chain;

median

Median of the MCMC chain;

q3

Third quantile of the MCMC chain; and

max

Maximum value of the MCMC chain.

ci.inf

Lower credible interval of the MCMC chain at level.

ci.sup

Upper credible interval of the MCMC chain at level.
