Bayesian Methods for Measures of Agreement (Chapman & by Lyle D. Broemeling

By Lyle D. Broemeling

Using WinBUGS to enforce Bayesian inferences of estimation and checking out hypotheses, Bayesian tools for Measures of Agreement provides worthwhile tools for the layout and research of contract reports. It makes a speciality of contract one of the a variety of avid gamers within the diagnostic process.

The writer employs a Bayesian method of supply statistical inferences in accordance with quite a few versions of intra- and interrater contract. He offers many examples that illustrate the Bayesian mode of reasoning and explains parts of a Bayesian program, together with earlier details, experimental details, the possibility functionality, posterior distribution, and predictive distribution. The appendices give you the valuable theoretical beginning to appreciate Bayesian tools in addition to introduce the basics of programming and executing the WinBUGS software.

Taking a Bayesian method of inference, this hands-on booklet explores various measures of contract, together with the Kappa coefficient, the G coefficient, and intraclass correlation. With examples all through and end-of-chapter routines, it discusses how one can effectively layout and study an contract study.
