For any Princeton graduate students who are interested, here’s the success rate for graduate students applying for school housing. These charts were built using the data from the 2008-2009 Room Draw Statistics pamphlet provided by the Division of Hou...

## Our new R package: R2jags

February 8, 2009
By

I have got emails occasionally from JAGS users, asking about our new R package: R2jags. Basically, R2jags runs JAGS via R and makes postanalysis easier to be done in R. Taking advantage of the functions...

I was completely tickled last year with the oh so amusing Statz Rappers. It kept me and my nerdy stats friends laughing for days. Rapping. Stats. The Internet. Good times. But little did I know that rapping about statistics was really just hitting its stride on youtube. This is Why We Plot began my trip

## ave

February 8, 2009

I discovered a new, very useful, R function yesterday: ave. This is what it does: “Subsets of ‘x‘ are averaged, where each subset consist of those observations with the same factor levels.” But interestingly, you can use any function other than average. The output of that function is set against each observation. I wanted

## R: Calculating all possible linear regression models for a given set of predictors

Although the graphic at the left might not seem a 100% appropriate, it gives a hint to what I am about to do. I want to calculate all possible linear regression models with one dependent and several independent variables. I do not want to address bias and fitting issues or the question if this

Yesterday the topic of academic citation counts came up, so I decided that I should write up some tools for exploring cite counts. The first thing I did was to build a cheap screenscraper in Ruby for pulling citation count information from Google schol...

## Correct Datetime / POSIXct behaviour for R and kdb+

February 3, 2009
By

We have started to look into kdb+ as a possible high-performance column-store backend. Kx offers free trials -- and so I have played with this for a day or two, both the general system, data loads and dumps and in particular with the interface to R, Based on the few files (one C source with interface code, one R file to access the...
