Interpret Bayesian Diagnostic Indices

Description

Interpretation of Bayesian diagnostic indices, such as Effective Sample Size (ESS) and Rhat.

Usage

interpret_ess(ess, rules = "burkner2017")

interpret_rhat(rhat, rules = "vehtari2019")

Arguments

ess

Value or vector of Effective Sample Size (ESS) values.

rules

A character string (see Rules) or a custom set of rules().

rhat

Value or vector of Rhat values.

Rules

ESS

  • Bürkner, P. C. (2017) ("burkner2017"; default)

    • ESS < 1000 - Insufficient

    • ESS >= 1000 - Sufficient

Rhat

  • Vehtari et al. (2019) ("vehtari2019"; default)

    • Rhat < 1.01 - Converged

    • Rhat >= 1.01 - Failed

  • Gelman & Rubin (1992) ("gelman1992")

    • Rhat < 1.1 - Converged

    • Rhat >= 1.1 - Failed
