jtools

cran
96th

Percentile

This is a collection of tools that the author (Jacob) has written for the purpose of more efficiently understanding and sharing the results of (primarily) regression analyses. There are also a number of miscellaneous functions for statistical and programming purposes. Just about everything supports models from the survey package.

91th

Percentile

A suite of functions for conducting and interpreting analysis of statistical interaction in regression models that was formerly part of the 'jtools' package. Functionality includes visualization of two- and three-way interactions among continuous and/or categorical variables as well as calculation of "simple slopes" and Johnson-Neyman intervals (see e.g., Bauer & Curran, 2005 <doi:10.1207/s15327906mbr4003_5>). These capabilities are implemented for generalized linear models in addition to the standard linear regression context.

panelr

cran
27th

Percentile

Provides an object type and associated tools for storing and wrangling panel data. Implements several methods for creating regression models that take advantage of the unique aspects of panel data. Among other capabilities, automates the "within-between" (also known as "between-within" and "hybrid") panel regression specification that combines the desirable aspects of both fixed effects and random effects econometric models and fits them as multilevel models (Allison, 2009 <doi:10.4135/9781412993869.d33>; Bell & Jones, 2015 <doi:10.1017/psrm.2014.7>). These models can also be estimated via generalized estimating equations (GEE; McNeish, 2019 <doi:10.1080/00273171.2019.1602504>) and Bayesian estimation is (optionally) supported via 'Stan'. Supports estimation of asymmetric effects models via first differences (Allison, 2019 <doi:10.1177/2378023119826441>) as well as a generalized linear model extension thereof using GEE.

margins

cran
94th

Percentile

An R port of Stata's 'margins' command, which can be used to calculate marginal (or partial) effects from model objects.
