Line Breaks Between Words in Axis Labels in ggplot in R

Sometimes when plotting factor variables in R, the graphics can look pretty messy thanks to long factor levels. If the level attributes have multiple words, there is an easy fix to this that often makes the axis labels look much cleaner.Without Line Br...

The San Francisco chapter of the ACM has been sponsoring this data mining themed, “un-conference” event since 2009. Attendance, this year was lighter than I remembered in the past, however, the event continues to be a viable...

Latent Gaussian Models and INLA

If you read my post about Fast Bayesian Inference with INLA you might wonder which models are included within the class of latent Gaussian models (LGM), and can therefore be fitted with INLA. Next I will give a general definition about LGM and later I will describe three completely different examples that belong to this

A Bayesian Model for a Function Increasing by Chi-Squared Jumps (in Stan)

(This article was first published on David Chudzicki's Blog, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers) This post will describe a way I came up with of fitting a function that's constrained to be increasing, using Stan. If you want practical help, standard statistical approaches, or expert research, this isn't the place for you (look up “isotonic regression” or “Bayesian isotonic...

Portable, personal packages

Portable, personal packages ProgrammingR had an interesting post recently about keeping a set of R functions that are used often as a gist on Github, and sourceing that file at the beginning of R analysis scripts. There is nothing inherently wrong with this, but it does end up cluttering the user workspace, and there is no...

Generating your own normal distribution table

It might sounds incredibly old fashion, but for my the exam for the ACT2121 probability course (to prepare for the exam P of the Society of Actuaries), I will provide a standard normal distribution table. The problem is that it is never the one we’re looking for (sometimes it is the survival function, sometimes it is the cumulative distribution function,...

Science at the speed of ligth

May be is not going that fast, but at the speed of R at least. And R is pretty quick. This has pros and cons. I think that understanding the drawbacks is key to maximize the good things of speed, … Continue reading →
