Table 1 Model comparison based on goodness-of-fit statistics

From: Treatment-seeking behaviour in low- and middle-income countries estimated using a Bayesian model

Model DIC PD Inverse log likelihood Number of chains
M1a 3615.9 2178.9 −0.001 3
M2a 3685.1 2256.1 −0.001 3
M3 5098.7 3693.1 −0.001 3
M4 23874.1 22754.0 −0.002 3
  1. DIC is the deviance information criterion while PD is the model complexity (number of model parameters)
  2. aModel 1 and model 2 only differ in prior specification for the b parameter
