From: Predictive P-score for treatment ranking in Bayesian network meta-analysis

Treatment Mean (P-score) Median 95% credible interval
Frequentist P-Score:
 1 0.048 NA NA
 2 0.404 NA NA
 3 0.710 NA NA
 4 0.838 NA NA
Scaled rank in the NMA:
 1 0.038 0.000 (0.000, 0.333)
 2 0.394 0.333 (0.000, 1.000)
 3 0.689 0.667 (0.333, 1.000)
 4 0.879 1.000 (0.333, 1.000)
Expected scaled rank in a new study:
 1 0.192 0.182 (0.061, 0.379)
 2 0.440 0.435 (0.189, 0.719)
 3 0.623 0.624 (0.425, 0.813)
 4 0.746 0.762 (0.456, 0.943)
