I was listening to the Bayesian Statistics Podcast, episode #6 and @betanalpha talked about using Stan to adjust for selection effects in data. I am wondering if there are any examples or case studies of this floating around. Much appreciated, thanks!

# Examples for modeling selection effect, non-response?

If you search on Discourse for Heckman, there are some good threads, such as this one:

Examples, and the vocabulary they use, will vary pretty strongly by field so you may want to start looking in a field in which you are comfortable. One-dimensional truncation is perhaps the simplest selection effect and there are example in the Stan manual. See also the last example in https://betanalpha.github.io/assets/case_studies/principled_bayesian_workflow.html.
