# Thinned subset of posterior sample from a Bayesian analysis of perception of correlation.

Source:`R/data.R`

`RankCorr.Rd`

Data from Kay and Heer (2016), primarily used for testing and examples.

## Details

For more details, see Kay and Heer (2016) or the Github repository describing the analysis:
https://github.com/mjskay/ranking-correlation. The original experiment (but not this analysis of it)
is described in Harrison *et al.* (2014).

`data("RankCorr")`

is a substantially thinned version of the original posterior sample and has omitted several
parameters in order for it to be a more manageable size.

`data("RankCorr_u_tau")`

is used for testing and examples and is roughly the equivalent of the following:
