Table 1 Results of Bayesian hierarchical modeling

From: Spatial analysis of MODIS aerosol optical depth, PM2.5, and chronic coronary heart disease

Fixed effects Posterior mean Posterior median Standard deviation MC error 95% Credible set
β0 -0.264 -0.273 0.064 0.003 (-0.366, -0.117)
β1 0.802 0.812 0.223 0.010 (0.386, 1.225)
  1. * Posterior means, medians, and 95% credible sets are based on 20,000 post-convergence iterations (from 60,0001 to 80,000). Fixed effects are: β0 – intercept, β1 – effect of PM2.5.
