If you disagree with our prior parameters, we encourage you to try our own values and see what you come up with, in the style of GiveWell, who provide their parameters as estimated by each staff member.

Do you have these numbers published, broken down by staff member?

It also would be cool to see breakdowns of the HEWALYs/$ for each charity before and after the Bayesian update with the prior.

No, we only have our group estimate published.

To see HEWALYs/$ before updating, you can look at the model outputs. You can also get them on our R Shiny app here by simply adding a line to calculate e.g. mean(miri).

How do you edit the model code?
