Informative Hypotheses

Legacy Software

The (legacy) software packages listed on this page are all replaced by BaIn. BaIn enables the evaluation of equality and inequality constrained hypotheses.

The software that is listed below is free and can be used to analyse your data. All the packages have extensively been tested, but we cannot guarantee that an error will never occur. If you want to receive a notification when the software on this page is updated, send an e-mail containing the line: “Send update-info for informative hypotheses software” to informative.hypotheses@uu.nl.

General statistical models

  • BIG is a Fortran 90 program for Bayesian evaluation of inequality constrained hypotheses for general statistical models.
  • BF-SEM is a Fortran 90 program for Bayesian evaluation of inequality constrained hypotheses for general statistical models. Compared to BIG, BF-SEM is much faster and has two options of prior specification.

Multivariate Normal Linear Models (MANOVA, Repeated Measures, Multivariate Regression)

  • BIEMS is a Fortran 90 program for calculating Bayes Factors for inequality and equality constrained models.

Univariate Normal (ANOVA, ANCOVA)

  • ConfirmatoryANOVA is software that can be used for the evaluation of informative hypotheses with both Bayesian and non-Bayesian approaches in the context of ANOVA models
  • The Bayesian model selection program can be used for the evaluation of informative hypotheses in the context of ANOVA and ANCOVA.

Contingency Tables

  • ContingencyTable is software that can be used for the evaluation of informative hypotheses in the context of contingency tables.
