Visualization Series: Using Scatterplots and Models to Understand the Diamond Market (so You Don’t Get Ripped Off)

My last post railed against the bad visualizations that people often use to plot quantitive data by groups, and pitted pie charts, bar charts and dot plots against each other for two visualization tasks.  Dot plots came out on top. … Continue reading →

The realized GARCH model

The last model added to the rugarch package dealt with the modelling of intraday volatility using a multiplicative component GARCH model. The newest addition is the realized GARCH model of Hansen, Huang and Shek (2012) (henceforth HHS2012) which relates the realized volatility measure to the latent volatility using a flexible representation with asymmetric dynamics. This

Importance sampling schemes for evidence approximation in mixture models

Jeong Eun (Kate) Lee and I completed this paper, “Importance sampling schemes for evidence approximation in mixture models“, now posted on arXiv. (With the customary one-day lag for posting, making me bemoan the days of yore when arXiv would give a definitive arXiv number at the time of submission.) Kate came twice to Paris in the past

Bootstrapping for Propensity Score Analysis

I am happy to announce that version 1.0 of the PSAboot package has been released to CRAN. This package implements bootstrapping for propensity score analysis. This deviates from typical implementations such as boot in that it allows for separate sampling specifications for treatment and control units. For example, in the case where the ratio of treatment-to-control units is...
