FlexReg-package: The 'FlexReg' package.

Description References


This package provides functions and methods to implement several types of regression models for continuous bounded responses (e.g., proportions and rates) and binomial data. Inferential statistical analysis is dealt with by Bayesian estimation based on the Hamiltonian Monte Carlo (HMC) algorithm through the `rstan` package.
