datasetposted on 08.11.2019 by Divya Vasudev, Varun R. Goswami
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Data are from questionnaire surveys conducted across tea estates in the landscape surrounding Kaziranga, Assam, Northeast India, on stakeholder attitudes towards the Asian elephant and its conservation. Script file is for assessing stakeholder attitudes while accounting for reporting error, using a Bayesian hierarchical model implemented in R and RStudio. Associated information is provided in Conservation Biology article titled 'A Bayesian hierarchical approach to quantifying stakeholder attitudes toward conservation in the presence of reporting error', authored by Divya Vasudev and Varun Goswami.
