Description Details Author(s) References Examples


This package contains function to compute Bayes factors for a number of research designs and hypotheses, including t tests, ANOVA, and linear regression, and contingency tables.

The following methods are currently implemented, with more to follow:

general linear models (including linear mixed effects models): generalTestBF, lmBF

linear regression: regressionBF, lmBF, linearReg.R2stat;

t tests: ttestBF, ttest.tstat;

meta-analytic t tests: meta.ttestBF

ANOVA: anovaBF, lmBF, oneWayAOV.Fstat;

contingency tables: contingencyTableBF;

single proportions: proportionBF;

Other useful functions: posterior, for sampling from posterior distributions; recompute, for re-estimating a Bayes factor or posterior distribution; compare, to compare two model posteriors; and plot.BFBayesFactor, for plotting Bayes factor objects.
