The Bias Project

The Bias Project is an effort to produce research and software addressing Bayesian methods for combining individual and aggregate data sources as seen in Ecological Inference and Small Area Estimation problems. Many of the software contributions are available as either either Winbugs or R programs.
The Bias Project is one of several research efforts at ESRC where unique problems in Social Science research are addressed and explored with modern statistical methods.

MIXPREG – mixed effects models

MIXPREG, MIXOR, MIXREG, MIXGSUR and MIXNO are a collection of high quality generalized regression modeling tools that allows for mixed effects and various forms of censoring. Correlated, nested and hierarchical data structures are also addressed. Estimation and inference is based on a full-information maximum likelihood approach rather than a Taylor expansion to linearized the likelihood. The software is free and WinXp, Solaris and Mac versions are available.
