Interpret Bayes Factor (BF)

interpret_bf( bf, rules = "jeffreys1961", include_value = FALSE, protect_ratio = TRUE, exact = TRUE )

bf | Value or vector of Bayes factor (BF) values. |
---|---|

rules | Can be |

include_value | Include the value in the output. |

protect_ratio | Should values smaller than 1 be represented as ratios? |

exact | Should very large or very small values be reported with a scientific format (e.g., 4.24e5), or as truncated values (as "> 1000" and "< 1/1000"). |

Argument names can be partially matched.

Rules apply to BF as ratios, so BF of 10 is as extreme as a BF of 0.1 (1/10).
