# Calculation of odds ratio

I used JASP to analyze a 2x2 cross table. However, I am wondering which formula is used to calculate the logOR. For the following numbers, logOR = 2.598 is given. If I put the numbers in a calculator like this one: https://www.medcalc.org/calc/odds_ratio.php and log(x) the result, I get 2.911225, which makes a great difference if one uses exp(x). Can you explain, where the formulas differ?

459Hi Duplex,

The Bayesian analysis produces a posterior distribution for the log odds ratio. This distribution is induced by the posteriors for the model parameters. You are comparing the result to the outcome of a classical analysis (the classical analysis in JASP

shouldproduce the numbers you mention).Cheers,

28Thanks, that makes sense. What do you suggest to report?

One more question: Where can I find the script that calculates the 95% credible intervals for the plots of the Bayesian t-test?

459Hi Duplex,

I would report whatever is consistent with your general mode of inference (classical vs Bayesian). Or report both. All code for JASP is available on GitHub. If you want help to locate the code more quickly I recommend you Email Tahira Jamil (http://www.uva.nl/en/about-the-uva/organisation/staff-members/content/j/a/t.jamil/t.jamil.html)

28Thank you very much. If you need help for an eventual German translation, I am glad to help.
