I am using cmdstan in R to draw sample from a posterior distribution. Once the sampling is completed, I would like to use some of the output of cmdstan_summary() for further process (i.e. to compute the MCSE to StdDev ratio). However, I cannot isolate the “table” of the cmdstan_summary(). Is there any was I could save only that as a matrix or any?
Thanks, avatar! Unfortunately, this is not what I am looking for. The summary()/print() extensions only return some summary statistics, while the cmdstan_summary() offers more information - specifically I wish to isolate the MCSE.
Ideally, I am interested to obtain the output of cmdstan_summary() in a matrix form, where rows are the variables, and columns are the statistics. This would be useful to use these for further analysis, or pass them into tables for presentation, etc.
