# Calculates Inefficiency Factors of the MCMC Draws Obtained for the Cluster-Specific Parameters

### Description

Calculates the inefficiency factors of the MCMC draws using `numEff`

from the R package bayesm
(see **References**).

### Usage

1 2 3 | ```
calcNumEff(outList, thin = 1, printXi = TRUE, printE = TRUE,
printBeta = TRUE,
grLabels = paste("Group", 1:outList$Prior$H))
``` |

### Arguments

`outList` |
specifies a list containing the outcome (return value) of an MCMC run of |

`thin` |
An integer specifying the thinning parameter (default is 1). |

`printXi` |
If |

`printE` |
If |

`printBeta` |
If |

`grLabels` |
A character vector giving user-specified names for the clusters/groups. |

### Value

A list containing tables of inefficiency factors:

`numEffXi[h]m ` |
Inefficiency factors of the MCMC draws obtained for each row |

`numEffEhm ` |
Inefficiency factors of the MCMC draws obtained for each row |

`numEffBeta ` |
Inefficiency factors of the MCMC draws obtained for the MNL regression coefficients for each cluster. |

### Note

Note, that in contrast to the literature (see **References**), the numbering (labelling) of the states of the
categorical outcome variable (time series) in this package is sometimes *0,...,K* (instead of
*1,...,K*), however, there are *K+1* categories (states)!
