rstapDP: Spatial Temporal Aggregated Dirichlet Process Predictors in R


The rstapDP package offers functions that fit a Linear Model with a Dirichlet Process Prior placed on a subset of the regression coefficients used to model the nonlinear heterogeneous effect of built environment feature (BEF) exposure across space/time. The primary target audience is researchers interested in the effect of BEFs on human health, though other applications are possible.
