Initialize individual latent status (for JAGS)

Description

Initialize individual latent status (for JAGS)

Usage

init_latent_jags_multipleSS(
  MSS_list,
  cause_list,
  patho = unlist(lapply(MSS_list, colnames))
)

Arguments

MSS_list

A list of silver-standard measurement data, possibly with more than one slices; see data_nplcm argument in nplcm()

cause_list

See model_options arguments in nplcm()

patho

A vector of measured pathogen name for MSS; default is colnames(MSS)

Details

In JAGS 3.4.0, if an initial value contradicts the probabilistic specification, e.g. MSS_1[i,j] ~ dbern(mu_ss_1[i,j]), where MSS_1[i,j]=1 but mu_ss_1[i,j]=0, then JAGS cannot understand it. In PERCH application, this is most likely used when the specificity of the silver-standard data is 1. Note: this is not a problem in WinBUGS.

Value

a list of numbers, indicating categories of individual latent causes.
