Tests the parallel regression assumption wit the brant test by Brant (1990) <doi: 10.2307/2532457> for ordinal logit models generated with the function polr() from the package 'MASS'.

Functions to calculate predicted values and the difference between the two cases with confidence interval for lm() [linear model], glm() [general linear model], glm.nb() [negative binomial model], polr() [ordinal logistic model], multinom() [multinomial model] and tobit() [tobit model] using Monte Carlo simulations or bootstrap.

Creates dummy columns from columns that have categorical variables (character or factor types). You can also specify which columns to make dummies out of, or which columns to ignore. Also creates dummy rows from character, factor, and Date columns. This package provides a significant speed increase from creating dummy variables through model.matrix().
