betabinomialcsi {CUB}R Documentation

Beta-Binomial probabilities of ordinal responses, given feeling parameter for each observation

Description

Compute the Beta-Binomial probabilities of given ordinal responses, with feeling parameter specified for each observation, and with the same overdispersion parameter for all the responses.

Usage

betabinomialcsi(m,ordinal,csivett,phi)

Arguments

m

Number of ordinal categories

ordinal

Vector of ordinal responses. Missing values are not allowed: they should be preliminarily deleted or imputed

csivett

Vector of feeling parameters of the Beta-Binomial distribution for given ordinal responses

phi

Overdispersion parameter of the Beta-Binomial distribution

Value

A vector of the same length as ordinal: each entry is the Beta-Binomial probability for the given observation for the corresponding feeling and overdispersion parameters.
