Description

Bayesian method of CI estimation with Beta prior distribution

Usage

1
ciBAx(x, n, alp, a, b)

Arguments

x

- Number of sucess

n

- Number of trials

alp

- Alpha value (significance level required)

a

- Shape parameter 1 for prior Beta distribution in Bayesian model. Can also be a vector of length n+1 priors.

b

- Shape parameter 2 for prior Beta distribution in Bayesian model. Can also be a vector of length n+1 priors.

Details

Highest Probability Density (HPD) and two tailed intervals are provided for the given x and n. based on the conjugate prior β(a, b) for the probability of success p of the binomial distribution so that the posterior is β(x + a, n - x + b).

Value

A dataframe with

x

- Number of successes (positive samples)

LBAQx

- Lower limits of Quantile based intervals

UBAQx

- Upper limits of Quantile based intervals

LBAHx

- Lower limits of HPD intervals

UBAHx

- Upper limits of HPD intervals
