The standard way of hypothesis testing relies on the so-called frequentist approach, using t-statistics and p-values for statistical inference. Yet this approach is misleading, and suffers from problems of interpretation. Bayesian methods of statistical inference circumvent these problems, and allow for a much richer interpretation of statistical results. We will discuss the differences in approaches in the simplest of settings (mean group comparisons) and apply it using JAGS and R.
Upon completion of this training, participants will have a thorough understanding of significance calculations, and will be able to apply bayesian methods in a realistic scenario.
