SSVS: Functions for Stochastic Search Variable Selection (SSVS)

Functions for performing stochastic search variable selection (SSVS) for binary and continuous outcomes and visualizing the results. SSVS is a Bayesian variable selection method used to estimate the probability that individual predictors should be included in a regression model. Using MCMC estimation, the method samples thousands of regression models in order to characterize the model uncertainty regarding both the predictor set and the regression parameters.
