hmflatlogit {bayess}R Documentation

Metropolis-Hastings for the logit model under a flat prior

Description

Under the assumption that the posterior distribution is well-defined, this Metropolis-Hastings algorithm produces a sample from the posterior distribution on the logit model coefficient beta under a flat prior.

Usage

hmflatlogit(niter, y, X, scale)

Arguments

niter

number of iterations

y

binary response variable

X

matrix of covariates with the same number of rows as y

scale

scale of the Metropolis-Hastings random walk

Value

The function produces a sample of beta's as a matrix of size niter x p, where p is the number of covariates.
