I think I have a relatively simple question. Does brms by default estimate correlations/covariances among predictor variables and among criterion variables? When the answer is yes, how can I get this output?
Thanks for your help.
Hi, @berwebel and sorry it’s taken us so long to get to your question.
We don’t ever evaluate correlations among predictors by default because of scaling problems. I’m not sure if brms has a way to do this, but if it doesn’t, you can just grab the output in the form of a sequence of draws and measure whichever correlations or covariances you want up to estimating the whole covariance matrix.
Ok, that’s good to know. Thank you for answering the questions and sorry for my late reply!
