Hierarchical modelling of faecal egg counts


This package implements Bayesian hierarchical models for the analysis of faecal egg count data. Bayesian inference is done via efficient MCMC sampling using Stan. Additional (experimental) models are available externally for handling FECs with potential outliers or bi-modality. The models are in eggCountsExtra package hosted on Github.
