Bayesian Evaluation of Inequality and Equality Constrained Hypotheses for Contingency Tables
Klugkist, Irene; Laudy, Olav; Hoijtink, Herbert
Psychological Methods, v15 n3 p281-299 Sep 2010
In this article, a Bayesian model selection approach is introduced that can select the best of a set of inequality and equality constrained hypotheses for contingency tables. The hypotheses are presented in terms of cell probabilities allowing researchers to test (in)equality constrained hypotheses in a format that is directly related to the data. The proposed method is investigated by several simulation studies and shows good performance. Software that allows researchers to apply the Bayesian approach to their own data is also provided. (Contains 4 figures and 14 tables.)
