compare_endpoints {bayesnec}R Documentation

compare_endpoints

Description

Extracts posterior predicted values from a list of class bayesnecfit or bayesmanecfit model fits and compares these via bootstrap re sampling.

Usage

compare_endpoints(
  x,
  comparison = "nec",
  ecx_val = 10,
  type = "absolute",
  hormesis_def = "control",
  sig_val = 0.01,
  precision,
  x_range = NA
)

Arguments

x

A named list of objects of class bayesnecfit or bayesmanecfit returned by bnec.

comparison

The posterior predictions to compare, takes values of "nec", "nsec", "ecx" or "fitted".

ecx_val

The desired percentage effect value. This must be a value between 1 and 99 (for type = "relative" and "absolute"), defaults to 10.

type

A character vector, taking values of "relative", "absolute" (the default) or "direct". See Details.

hormesis_def

A character vector, taking values of "max" or "control". See Details.

sig_val

Probability value to use as the lower quantile to test significance of the predicted posterior values. against the lowest observed concentration (assumed to be the control), to estimate NEC as an interpolated NOEC value from smooth ECx curves.

precision

The number of unique x values over which to find ECx - large values will make the ECx estimate more precise.

x_range

A range of x values over which to consider extracting ECx.

Value

A named list containing bootstrapped differences in posterior predictions of the bayesnecfit or bayesmanecfit model fits contained in x. See Details.
