AE Bayesian Hierarchical Model
Running this process for Nicardipine using default settings generates the tabbed Results window shown below. Refer to the AE Bayesian Hierarchical Model process description for more information. Output from the process is organized into tabs. Each tab contains one or more plots, data panels, data filters, or other elements that facilitate your analysis.
The Results window contains the following panes:
Tab Viewer
This pane provides you with a space to view individual tabs within the Results window. Use the tabs to access and view the output plots and associated data sets.
Tabs
This pane enables you to access and view the output plots and associated data sets on each tab. Use the drop-down menu to view the tab in the Tab Viewer pane, open the tab in a new window, or remove the tab and its contents from the Tab Viewer pane.
The following tabs are generated by this process:
Volcano Plot for Odds Ratio: Contains a volcano plot of the posterior exceedance probability by odds ratio sized by the number of subjects experiencing each event.
Volcano Plot for Difference in Proportions: Contains a volcano plot of the posterior exceedance probability by difference in proportions sized by the number of subjects experiencing each event.
Hyperparameters: Presents a list of hyperparameters and their values.
MCMC Diagnostics: Details diagnostic information about each parameter.
Caution: The MCMC Diagnostics tab is not shown in the Tab Viewer by default, as it contains a large set of detailed graphs. If you decide to view this tab, click on it from the Tabs pane, select View Tab, and allow a few moments for it to load.
SAS Output: Lists the output from the SAS procedure used to fit the model.
Drill Down Buttons
Drill down buttons provide you with an easy way to drill down into your data. The following drill down buttons are generated by this process:
Forest Plots of Credible Intervals: Select events and click Forest Plots of Credible Intervals to surface the Forest Plots of Credible Intervals window, containing a credible interval for each event. You can specify how to sort events, as well as the credible interval percentage, on this window.
Show Events: Select events and click Show Events to view the data table containing detailed counts and statistics for each selected event.
General
Click View Data to view the associated data table. Refer to View Data for more information.
Clicking this button opens the bhm_exceed_XXX.sas7bdat data set (XXX is some number indicating the number of times this report has been run for this study), which contains the summary statistics and credible intervals for odds ratio for all events. Additional output data sets, which are located in the specified output folder are listed in the table below:

Note: If a log-linear model is fit, then the odds ratio and difference in proportions are replaced with hazard ratio and difference in hazard rates, respectively.
