World Statistics Day is 2010 October 20. If you work with data (or you should), then you are a statistician and this is a day for you. Try the Monte Hall problem on your mother. Start reading Bad Science. I mean the book, but here’s the blog. Take a step towards breaking your spreadsheet addiction … Continue reading...

U.S. Congressional districts are today drawn with the aim of maximizing the electoral advantage of the state’s majority party, subject to some constraints, including compactness (which can be measured in numerous ways) and a “one person, one vote” standard. What if, instead of minimizing population variance across districts, we aimed to minimize the mean distance between … Continue reading →

The winners of this year's ggplot2 case study competition have been announced. I was honoured to be asked to be a judge of the competition this year, but it was a difficult job with so many excellent entries. In the end, the judging panel (which included Heike Hoffman and Hadley Wickham and me) selected three entries which each demonstrated...

I tried to implement the Strassen's algorithm for big matrices multiplication in R.Here I present a pdf with some theory element, some example and a possible solution in R.I'm not a programmer, so the function is not optimize, but it works.I want to th...

Fringe provides an excellent example of cointegration. This is a television show in which there are two adjacent universes. The universes are almost alike but not exactly. Now, everyone knows that history is chaotic. If a butterfly does an extra flap of its wings, then that difference spreads out to change subsequent events everywhere. But … Continue reading...

his blog post is mainly for Stat 579 students on the homework for week 7, since I received too many “gory” loops in the homework submissions and I think it would help a bit to write my thoughts on R loops for beginners. The immortal motto for newbies in programming is: If you want to

Our "arm" package in R requires Doug Bates's "lme4" which fits multilevel models. lme4 is currently having some problems on the Mac. But installation on the Mac can be done; it just takes a bit of work. I have two...

After recently discovering the excellent methods section on mappingonlinepublics.net, I decided it was time to document my own approach to Twitter data. I’ve been messing around with R and igraph for a while, but it wasn’t until I discovered Gephi that things really moved forward. R/igraph are great for preprocessing the data (not sure how

Hello everyone. Recently I’ve been toying with the idea of extending R-bloggers to other languages then English. After running some checks, I believe it is possible to do (under a sub website inside R-bloggers.com), where people would be able to follow R content on a “language category” of their choosing. Such a project could help map out all the...

After a somewhat long hiatus, RPostgreSQL version 0.1-7 has now been released to CRAN. RPostgreSQL connects R to PostgreSQL database systems using the standard DBI interface. This version fixes a number of issues that had been compiled in the issu...

In part 1 and part 2 we went over the background of nightlights and the fundamental problem: Station inventory data had errors in it: In Hansen 2010, Hansen writes: “ Station location in the meteorological data records is provided with a resolution of 0.01 degrees of latitude and longitude, corresponding to a distance of about 1
