Statistical analysis of bop data l.jpg
Statistical Analysis of BOP Data

  • Statistical model for effects threshold

    • Linear Mixed Effects Models

    • Statistical Fits

  • Questions to consider for the analysis

    • Trading Ratios?

    • Log(AHAAH)

    • Frequency Dependency


Statistical analysis of chinchilla data l.jpg
Statistical Analysis of Chinchilla Data

Applied linear mixed effects regression models to compare the different metrics

  • Fixed effects: metric and frequency and log transformations of these variables

  • Random effects: subject and exposure code (takes into account correlated nature of data for given subject and exposure code)




Preliminary findings l.jpg
Preliminary Findings

  • LAeq8 provides the best fit to the TTS data of the competing metrics.

  • Unwarned AHAAH tends to provide the best fit to the PTS data after a log(AHAAH) transformation.


Discussion topics l.jpg
Discussion Topics

  • Utility of providing a transformation of AHAAH estimates.

  • Sampling Rate questions for all models.

  • Frequency dependency for the models.

    • AHAAH model may have predictive capability for frequency that other models do not.

  • Should we pursue finding best trading ratios?

    • 10 log(N), 5 log(N), x log(N)


Discussion topics25 l.jpg
Discussion topics

  • What outcome variable is the most useful here?

  • Are we interested in developing a better model to fit the data or just existing models?
