Vertigo data: INLA vs. MCMC approach. Bayesian inference for fixed effects (Poisson random slope model): comparison of samples from a long MCMC chain (□) with the posterior marginals computed with the Laplace approximation (—) obtained by using INLA. The vertical blue line shows the posterior mean.
