Unfortunately, the original version of the article [1] contained an error. A typo in the main equation (Eq. 1) has been introduced during the production process. The operator “ = ” in Eq. 1 “log(θik) =  α + ui…” was missing.

The equation should read as:

$$\begin{aligned} Y_{ik} & \sim Poisson\left( {\mu_{ik} } \right) \\ \mu_{ik} & = E_{i} \theta_{ik} \\ \log \left( {\theta_{ik} } \right) & = \alpha + u_{i} + v_{i} + w_{j} + g_{k} + \varvec{\beta^{\prime}}_{1} \varvec{X}_{ik} + \varvec{\beta^{\prime}}_{2} \varvec{X}_{j} \\ \beta_{*} & \sim Normal\left( {0,\tau_{*}^{ - 1} } \right) \\ \tau_{*}^{ - 1} & \sim Gamma\left( {2,1} \right) \\ \end{aligned}$$

The original article has been corrected.
