Statistics plays an important part in almost all disciplines, including applied ergonomics and human factors. Majority of applied ergonomics literature uses the classical or frequentist statistical methods, and the applications of Bayesian statistical methods in applied ergonomics has been quite limited. This is possibly due to two reasons: (i) the discipline of applied ergonomics is relatively new, dating back to WWI, and (ii) computationally intensive nature of Bayesian solutions. In other disciplines, Bayesian statistical methods have become quite popular. The purpose of this article is to introduce Bayesian regression modeling to the research area of applied ergonomics, via a dataset from ergonomics research.
