Bayes Factors for Informative Hypotheses

Computes approximated adjusted fractional Bayes factors for equality, inequality, and about equality constrained hypotheses. S3 methods are available for specific types of lm() models, namely ANOVA, ANCOVA, and multiple regression, and for the t_test(). The statistical underpinnings are described in Gu, Mulder, and Hoijtink, (2018) , Hoijtink, Gu, and Mulder, (2018) , and Hoijtink, Gu, Mulder, and Rosseel, (2018) .


BuildStatus

lifecycle

Bain is an abbreviation for BAyesian INformative hypothesis evaluation. It uses the Bayes factor to evaluate equality and inequality constraint hypotheses in a wide variety of statistical models.

Installation

You can install bain from github with:

# install.packages("devtools")
devtools::install_github("cjvanlissa/bain", args = c("--no-multiarch", "--no-test-load"))

Workflow

Add bain to your existing R workflow, and obtain Bayes factors for your familiar R analyses! Bain is compatible with the pipe operator. Here is an example for testing an informative hypothesis about mean differences in an ANOVA:

# Load dplyr to access the pipe operator
library(dplyr)
iris %>%                                 # Example data
  select(Sepal.Length, Species) %>%      # Select outcome and predictor variables
  lm(Sepal.Length ~ -1 + Species, .) %>% # Add -1 to the formula to estimate group means, as in ANOVA
  bain("setosa < versicolor = virginica; setosa < versicolor < virginica")
