If you’re a regular reader of my blog you’ll know that I’ve spent some time dabbling with neural networks. As I explained here, I’ve used neural networks in my own research to develop inference into causation. Neural networks fall under two general categories that describe their intended use. Supervised neural networks (e.g., multilayer feed-forward networks)

Introduction Continuing my recent series on exploratory data analysis (EDA), today’s post focuses on 5-number summaries, which were previously mentioned in the post on descriptive statistics in this series. I will define and calculate the 5-number summary in 2 different ways that are commonly used in R. (It turns out that different methods arise from

the national plan and provider enumeration system (nppes) contains information about every provider, insurance plan, and clearinghouse actively operating in the united states healthcare industry. did i just see the ears of all the health workforce researchers in the room perk up? it's freely downloadable, courtesy of the department of health and human services' implementation of the...

In my June 25 post I described R- (i) code to change scale without changing the mean, and (ii) code to make a probability distribution symmetric by modifying order statistics. Both are commonly encountered problems by R programmers. My coauthor Javier Lopez-de-Lacalle of Spain has incorporated an efficient version of my code inside the maximum entropy bootstrap (meboot) package in R See the package...

In case you missed them, here are some articles from July of particular interest to R users: A new 90-second, creative commons video helps R enthusiasts share the history, community and applications of R. Analyst group Butler Analytics reviews 10 predictive analytics platforms, and says that "real analysts use R". An excellent example of Simpsons Paradox: US median wages...

Where else will you hear Pimco, rolling correlation, R, gridSVG, lattice, and d3 all in one post? Let’s mix them all together to see what might happen. For those here for the geekery, we will add a d3 axis for our y and it will follow the mouse. For those who care nothing about d3 and R, you might...
