Table 3 Posterior estimates of mean (+ 90% credible interval) for continuous measure (median for stress) of maternal mental health with posterior probability of differing from autism

From: Using Bayesian methodology to explore the profile of mental health and well-being in 646 mothers of children with 13 rare genetic syndromes in relation to mothers of children with autism

  1. Posterior probability of difference = 1 indicates posterior distributions of estimate highly unlikely to be equivalent. Posterior probability = 0 indicates no detectable difference
