As I continue to learn and grow in using R I have been trying to develop
the habit of being more formal in documenting and maintaining the
various functions and pieces of code I write. It’s not that I think they
are major inventions but they are useful and I like having them stored
in one place that I can keep track of. So I started building them as a
package and even publishing them to CRAN. For any of you who might find
them of interest as well.

Overview

A package that includes functions that I find useful for teaching
statistics as well as actually practicing the art. They typically are
not “new” methods but rather wrappers around either base R or other
packages and concepts I’m trying to master. Currently contains:

• Plot2WayANOVA which as the name implies conducts a 2 way ANOVA and
plots the results using ggplot2
• PlotXTabs which as the name implies plots cross tabulated
variables using ggplot2
• neweta which is a helper function that appends the results of a
Type II eta squared calculation onto a classic ANOVA table
• Mode which finds the modal value in a vector of data
• SeeDist which wraps around ggplot2 to provide visualizations of
univariate data.
• OurConf is a simulation function that helps you learn about
confidence intervals

Installation

# Install from CRAN
install.packages("CGPfunctions")

# Or the development version from GitHub
# install.packages("devtools")
devtools::install_github("ibecav/CGPfunctions")

whose etaSquared function was the genesis of neweta.

A shoutout to some other packages I find essential.

• stringr, for strings.
• lubridate, for date/times.
• forcats, for factors.
• haven, for SPSS, SAS and Stata
files.
• readxl, for .xls and .xlsx
files.
• modelr, for modelling within a
pipeline
• broom, for turning models into
tidy data
• ggplot2, for data visualisation.
• dplyr, for data manipulation.
• tidyr, for data tidying.
• readr, for data import.
• purrr, for functional programming.
• tibble, for tibbles, a modern
re-imagining of data frames.
