Using C libraries in R with rdyncall

One reason I like using R for data analysis is that R has a great collection of packages that let you easily apply state-of-the-art methods to your problems. But once in a while you find a library that you would like to use that does not have a R wrapper, yet. While the great Rcpp

Reproducibility and randomness

With Stéphane Tufféry, we were working this week on a chapter of a book, entitled Statistical Learning in Actuarial Science. The chapter should be based on R functions, and we wanted to reproduce some outputs he previously obtained with SAS. The good thing is that even complex functions (logistic regression, regression trees, etc) produce the same kind of outputs....

Veterinary Epidemiologic Research: Count and Rate Data – Poisson Regression and Risk Ratios

As noted on paragraph 18.4.1 of the book Veterinary Epidemiologic Research, logistic regression is widely used for binary data, with the estimates reported as odds ratios (OR). If it’s appropriate for case-control studies, risk ratios (RR) are preferred for cohort studies as RR provides estimates of probabilities directly. Moreover, it is often forgotten the assumption

Omni test for statistical significance

In survey research, our datasets nearly always comprise variables with mixed measurement levels – in particular, nominal, ordinal and continuous, or in R-speak, unordered factors, ordered factors and numeric variables. Sometimes it is useful to be able to do blanket tests of one set of variables (possibly of mixed level) against another without having to
