group
, at
, group_by
and split_by
will be deprecated
in future releases of easystats packages. Please use by
instead. This
affects following functions in bayestestR: estimate_density()
.bayesian_as_frequentist()
now supports more model families from Bayesian
models that can be successfully converted to their frequentists counterparts.
bayesfactor_models()
now throws an informative error when Bayes factors for
comparisons could not be calculated.
bayesian_as_frequentist()
for brms models with 0 + Intercept
specification in the model formula.pd_to_p()
now returns 1 and a warning for values smaller than 0.5.
map_estimate()
, p_direction()
, p_map()
, and p_significance()
now
return a data-frame when the input is a numeric vector. (making the output
consistently a data frame for all inputs.)
Argument posteriors
was renamed into posterior
. Before, there were a mix
of both spellings, now it is consistently posterior
.
Fixed issues in various format()
methods, which did not work properly for
some few functions (like p_direction()
).
Fixed issue in estimate_density()
for double vectors that also had other
class attributes.
Fixed several minor issues and tests.
Improved speed performance when functions are called using do.call()
.
Improved speed performance to bayesfactor_models()
for brmsfit
objects
that already included a marglik
element in the model object.
as.logical()
for bayesfactor_restricted()
results, extracts the boolean
vector(s) the mark which draws are part of the order restriction.p_map()
gains a new null
argument to specify any non-0 nulls.
Fixed non-working examples for ci(method = "SI")
.
Fixed wrong calculation of rope range for model objects in describe_posterior()
.
Some smaller bug fixes.
The minimum needed R version has been bumped to 3.6
.
contr.equalprior(contrasts = FALSE)
(previously contr.orthonorm
) no longer returns an identity matrix, but a shifted diag(n) - 1/n
, for consistency.
p_to_bf()
, to convert p-values into Bayes factors. For more accurate approximate Bayes factors, use bic_to_bf()
.rvar
from package posterior.contr.equalprior
(previously contr.orthonorm
) gains two new functions: contr.equalprior_pairs
and contr.equalprior_deviations
to aide in setting more intuitive priors.contr.equalprior
to be more explicit about its function.p_direction()
now accepts objects of class parameters_model()
(from
parameters::model_parameters()
), to compute probability of direction for
parameters of frequentist models.Bayesfactor_models()
for frequentist models now relies on the updated insight::get_loglikelihood()
. This might change some results for REML based models. See documentation.
estimate_density()
argument group_by
is renamed at
.
All distribution_*(random = FALSE)
functions now rely on ppoints()
, which will result in slightly different results, especially with small n
s.
Uncertainty estimation now defaults to "eti"
(formerly was "hdi"
).
bayestestR functions now support draws
objects from package posterior.
rope_range()
now handles log(normal)-families and models with log-transformed outcomes.
New function spi()
, to compute shortest probability intervals. Furthermore, the "spi"
option was added as new method to compute uncertainty intervals.
bci()
for some objects incorrectly returned the equal-tailed intervals.describe_posterior()
gains a plot()
method, which is a short cut for
plot(estimate_density(describe_posterior()))
.Fixed issues related to last brms update.
Fixed bug in describe_posterior.BFBayesFactor()
where Bayes factors were missing from out put ( #442 ).
log(BF)
(column name log_BF
).
Printing is unaffected. To retrieve the raw BFs, you can run exp(result$log_BF)
.bci()
(and its alias bcai()
) to compute bias-corrected and accelerated
bootstrap intervals. Along with this new function, ci()
and
describe_posterior()
gain a new ci_method
type, "bci"
.contr.bayes
has been renamed contr.orthonorm
to be more explicit about its function.The default ci
width has been changed to 0.95 instead of 0.89 (see
here). This should
not come as a surprise to the long-time users of bayestestR
as we have been
warning about this impending change for a while now :)
Column names for bayesfactor_restricted()
are now p_prior
and
p_posterior
(was Prior_prob
and Posterior_prob
), to be consistent with
bayesfactor_inclusion()
output.
Removed the experimental function mhdior
.
Support for blavaan
models.
Support for blrm
models (rmsb).

models (BGGM).

fraction for rope()

,
describe_prior()
and simulate_prior()
.

methods gain a component
argument, to also include auxiliary
parameters.bayesfactor_parameters()
no longer errors for no reason when computing
extremely un/likely direction hypotheses.
bayesfactor_pointull()
/ bf_pointull()
are now bayesfactor_pointnull()
/
bf_pointnull()
(can you spot the difference? #363 ).

, a function for sequential effect existence and significance testing
(SEXIT).Added startup-message to warn users that default ci-width might change in a future update.
Added support for mcmc.list objects.
unupdate()
gains a newdata
argument to work with brmsfit_multiple
models.

function for bayesfactor_model
arrays.
