posterior_summary {brms}  R Documentation 
Summarize Posterior draws
Description
Summarizes posterior draws based on point estimates (mean or median), estimation errors (SD or MAD) and quantiles. This function mainly exists to retain backwards compatibility. It will eventually be replaced by functions of the posterior package (see examples below).
Usage
posterior_summary(x, ...)
## Default S3 method:
posterior_summary(x, probs = c(0.025, 0.975), robust = FALSE, ...)
## S3 method for class 'brmsfit'
posterior_summary(
x,
pars = NA,
variable = NULL,
probs = c(0.025, 0.975),
robust = FALSE,
...
)
Arguments
x 
An R object. 
... 
More arguments passed to or from other methods. 
probs 
The percentiles to be computed by the

robust 
If 
pars 
Deprecated alias of 
variable 
A character vector providing the variables to extract. By default, all variables are extracted. 
Value
A matrix where rows indicate variables and columns indicate the summary estimates.
