Comparison of results

I am doing a simple comparison of different estimation procedures in dealing with a simple binomial model. Here is where I got started:



# Using INLA
formula = r ~ x1*x2 + f(plate, model="iid")
mod.inla = inla(formula, data=Seeds, family="binomial", Ntrials=n)

# Using npmlreg <- alldist(cbind(r, n-r) ~ x1*x2 , random=~1, data=Seeds, family=binomial, random.distribution="gq")

# Using MCMCglmm
prior <- list(R=list(V=1, nu=0.002))
mod.mcmc <- MCMCglmm(cbind(r, n-r) ~ x1*x2, family="multinomial2", data=Seeds, prior=prior)

# Using DPpackage
I will keep updating by adding new things (estimation procedures, predictive simulations, etc.)
