Bayesian Models and Model Averaging Software (External Review, 2018)

Citation:

U.S. EPA. Bayesian Models and Model Averaging Software (External Review, 2018).

Impact/Purpose:

The primary purpose of this review was to obtain external expert opinions on EPA’s proposed model averaging approach for the derivation of BMD and BMDL values from dichotomous dose-response datasets.

Description:

In 2018, the BMDS Bayesian models and Bayesian model averaging (BMA) software package for performing dose-response analyses of dichotomous data was externally reviewed by three experts in Bayesian risk assessment methods and dose-response modeling. Peer review comments are documented in a Bayesian Model Averaging for Dichotomous Data Peer Review Report.
