Bayesian linear models with uniform priors

Description

Gelman et al. (2002) describe general methods for Bayesian implementation of simple linear models (e.g. simple and multiple regression and fixed effect one way ANOVA) with standard non-informative priors uniform on α, σ^2. The function is not yet suited for multifactor or multivariance (random effect) ANOVAs.

Usage


bayes.lm(Y, X, model = "anova", length = 1000, cred = 0.95)

Arguments

Y

An n x 1 column vector (a matrix with one column) containing the response variable.

X

The n x p design matrix

model

One of "anova" or "reg". Parameter output labels are changed depending on choice.

length

Number of draws for posterior.

cred

Level for credible interval.

Value

Provides the median and central credible intervals for model parameters.
