Regardless of the estimation algorithm, point estimates are medians computed
from simulations. For models fit using MCMC (
"sampling") the posterior
sample is used. For optimization (
"optimizing"), the simulations are
generated from the asymptotic Gaussian sampling distribution of the
parameters. For the
approximations, draws from the variational approximation to the posterior are
used. In all cases, the point estimates reported are the same as the values
The standard deviations reported (labeled
MAD_SD in the print output)
are computed from the same set of draws described above and are proportional
to the median absolute deviation (
mad) from the median.
Compared to the raw posterior standard deviation, the MAD_SD will be
more robust for long-tailed distributions. These are the same as the values
For GLMs with group-specific terms (see
stan_glmer) the printed
output also shows point estimates of the standard deviations of the group
effects (and correlations if there are both intercept and slopes that vary by
For analysis of variance models (see
stan_aov) models, an
ANOVA-like table is also displayed.
For joint longitudinal and time-to-event (see
the estimates are presented separately for each of the distinct submodels.
