The proportion of randomised pairings of posterior rate samples for which the value for the first subtype in the comparison, minus the value for the second subtype in the comparison, was greater than 0 (top value in each cell) and less than 0 (bottom value in each cell) is reported. Similar distributions would be indicated by the difference being greater than 0 (likewise less than 0) in approximately 50% of pairings. Differences in the location of the distributions would be indicated by a more extreme split in one direction.
