Inclusion Bayes factors answer the question: Are the observed data more probable under models with a particular effect, than they are under models without that particular effect? In other words, on average - are models with effect X more likely to have produced the observed data than models without effect X?
match_models=FALSE (default), Inclusion BFs are computed by comparing
all models with a term against all models without that term. If
comparison is restricted to models that (1) do not include any interactions
with the term of interest; (2) for interaction terms, averaging is done only
across models that containe the main effect terms from which the interaction
term is comprised.
a data frame containing the prior and posterior probabilities, and log(BF) for each effect.
A Bayes factor greater than 1 can be interpreted as evidence against the null, at which one convention is that a Bayes factor greater than 3 can be considered as "substantial" evidence against the null (and vice versa, a Bayes factor smaller than 1/3 indicates substantial evidence in favor of the null-model) (Wetzels et al. 2011).
Random effects in the
lmer style are converted to interaction terms:
(X|G) will become the terms
