Expected overestimation of Cohen’s d under publication bias

In this post I will use the theoretical and empirical sampling distribution of Cohen's d to show the expected overestimation due to selective publishing. I will look at the overestimation for various sample sizes when the population effect is 0, 0.2, 0.5 and 0.8. The conclusion is that you should be weary of effect sizes from small samples, and...

An idiot learns Bayesian analysis: Part 1

Shoot The Heart With Monte Carlo

The heart has its reasons which reason knows not (Blaise Pascal) You only need two functions to draw a heart mathematically. The upper part is generated by (1-(|x|-1)2)1/2 and the lower one by acos(1-|x|)-PI. Here is how this heart is: Whats the area of this heart? It’s easy: integrating heart.up(x)-heart.dw(x) between -2 and 2 and

Plain Text, Papers, Pandoc

Over the past few months, I’ve had several people ask me about the tools I use to put papers together. I maintain a page of resources somewhat grandiosely headed “Writing and Presenting Social Science”. Really it just makes public some configuration files and templates for my text editor and related tools. Things have changed a little recently—which led...

Together with many other packages written by Hadley Wickham, plyr is a package that I use a lot for data processing. The syntax is clean, and it works great for breaking down larger data.frame‘s into smaller summaries. The greatest disadvantage… See more ›

Using One Programming Language In the Context of Another – Python and R

Over the last couple of years, I’ve settled into using R an python as my languages of choice for doing stuff: R, because RStudio is a nice environment, I can blend code and text using R markdown and knitr, ggplot2 and Rcharts make generating graphics easy, and reshapers such as plyr make wrangling with data

I’ve recently been dabbling with parallel processing in R and have found the foreach package to be a useful approach to increasing efficiency of loops.
