Last time, I showed how we can write R code for fitting a Bayesian Generalized Linear Mixed Model and insert it into a Stata do file, so that the computation is performed by the R program, MCMCglmm, while the results are available in Stata. The drawback of that approach is that it requires the user […]
Over time my programs for Bayesian analysis with Stata evolve and, I hope, improve. Periodically, I update my webpage at https://www2.le.ac.uk/Members/trj to reflect these changes. There are three recent updates that might be of interest. Philip Besuner contacted me to report an error in the logdensity.ado file when calculating the log-density for the lognormal distribution. […]
I always advise students not to tie themselves to one piece of statistical software, even when it is as good as Stata. It is inevitable that whichever statistical package they choose, there will be tasks that are easier in another program or analyses that their favourite does not offer. The problem with this advice is that it takes […]
Keen Stata users will be aware that Stata 14 was released this week. I got a email flyer advertising the new release and the lead item was the fact that Bayesian analysis is now part of official Stata. I have been campaigning for wider use of Bayesian methods and the fact that Stata now offers […]
Most of my postings are based on bits of code that were produced for other reasons; perhaps for my teaching or for my research or sometimes they are left over from when I was writing the book on Bayesian Analysis with Stata. So typically I spend a couple of hours each week on the blog; […]
