  1. %AIC: Percentage of times each model (between compared models) was retained according AIC
  2. aPercentage of times Models 3.1 and 3.2 were retained
  3. Scenarios A to E: Proportion of subjects with x = 1 is 90%; Scenario F: Proportions of subjects with x = 1 and x = 2 are respectively 10 and 80%
