Setting priors for a beta distribution in R-INLA

I'm running a regression in R-INLA, where the response variable is proportion of grid squares suffering deforestation (by year, over a 20-year period). Setting the response for the last 5 years to NA ...

How to validate or make predictions from a spatial Cox PH survival model built with R-INLA?

I'm trying to model deforestation as a survival analysis. I have a raster map where unaffected areas are zero and deforested pixels have values 1-20 depending on the year of deforestation (2001-20). I ...

INLA Fitting logistic regression using bym or besag smoothing using neighboring spatial points instead of neighboring polygons

Ordinarily, if you want to account for the effect spatial boundaries have on certain variables. You could fit as follows as highlighted in Virgilio Gómez-Rubio's Bayesian inference with INLA article. <...

INLA in R for fitting parametric and semiparametric (Cox-like) survival models with frailties

I am exploring different methods of fitting survival models in R. One method of interest utilizes INLA for fitting Cox-type semi-parametric survival models. I would like to compare fits from INLA to ...

Model comparison: WAIC value is large between nested random effect models

I have computed two models using INLA and following the proceedure laid out in this paper. As in the paper, the model has two random effects, one representing temporal relationships between data ...

How can I interpret the estimated random coefficients (e.g. random intercept) in a mixed model?

We know that random effects are estimated as a probability distribution rather than each individual random coefficients. Take the simplest random intercept model as an example: $biomass_{i,j}$ ~ $...
