The blog will aim for brevity, and a focussed approach to getting some stats done, rather than elegance of code. Discussions which show how to replicate the result in a more elegant fashion, or
Since launching StackOverflow.com as a Q&A forum for programmers, the StackExchange network is now launching about three new sites a week on topics as specialized as cooking, jobs, and many many more.

Statistical Analysis Q&A is a web page dedicated to exchange questions, answers and ideas primarily on statistics.
Previously, I plotted a grid of NASA GISS global temps in ggplot2 to show general trends by the brute force method. Here, I will again use the brute force method to do a simple power analysis on a portion of the data (data here). The general aim is to figure out what the minimum sample
Back home after those two weeks in CiRM for our “research in pair” invitation to work on the new edition of Bayesian Core, I am very grateful for the support we received from CiRM and through it from SMF and CNRS. Being “locked” away in such a remote place brought a considerable increase in concentration
