Bayesian Analysis of Between-Group Differences in Variance Components in Hierarchical Generalized Linear Models


Frequentist approaches to making inferences about the variances of random cluster effects in hierarchical generalized linear models (HGLMs) for non-normal variables have several limitations. These include reliance on asymptotic theory, questionable properties of classical likelihood ratio tests when pseudo-likelihood methods are used for estimation, and a… (More)
