Table 3 Estimations of the links between the success and treatment discontinuation processes for the Parisian and the Medium-sized city center

From: Joint modeling of success and treatment discontinuation in in vitrofertilization programs: a retrospective cohort study

  Posterior mean (posterior standard deviation)a 95% credible interval Test of λb
λ Paris 0.01 (0.11) [-0.2,0.2] L = 2.70 c - NS
λ Medium-sized city -0.21 (0.12) [-0.5,0.0] L = -5.26 d - S
  1. a the models were adjusted for female age and center.
  2. b using partial Bayes factors (see Methods section).
  3. c The competitive models were M0: Paris = 0 and λ Medium-sized city =0] vs M1: Paris ≠ 0 and λ Medium-sized city =0 ]. There is a positive evidence against λParis ≠ 0 meaning that λParis is non-significantly (NS) different from 0 (H0 is not rejected).
  4. d The competitive models were M0: Paris = 0 and λ Medium-sized city = 0] vs M1: Paris = 0 and λ Medium-sized city ≠ 0]. There is a positive evidence against λMedium-sized city =0 meaning that λMedium-sized city is significantly (S) different from 0 (H0 is rejected).
