The strength of evidence provided by epidemiological and observational studies is inherently limited by the potential for unmeasured confounding. We focus on three key quantities: the observed bound of the confidence interval closest to the null, a plausible residual effect size for an unmeasured continuous or binary confounder, and a realistic mean difference or prevalence difference for this hypothetical confounder. Building on the methods put forth by Lin, Psaty, & Kronmal (1998) DOI:10.2307/2533848, we can use these quantities to assess how an unmeasured confounder may tip our result to insignificance, rendering the study inconclusive.

Percentile

Analyze lines of R code using tidy principles. This allows you to input lines of R code and output a data frame with one row per function included. Additionally, it facilitates code classification via included lexicons.

Percentile

The Datasaurus Dozen is a set of datasets with the same summary statistics. They retain the same summary statistics despite having radically different distributions. The datasets represent a larger and quirkier object lesson that is typically taught via Anscombe's Quartet (available in the 'datasets' package). Anscombe's Quartet contains four very different distributions with the same summary statistics and as such highlights the value of visualisation in understanding data, over and above summary statistics. As well as being an engaging variant on the Quartet, the data is generated in a novel way. The simulated annealing process used to derive datasets from the original Datasaurus is detailed in "Same Stats, Different Graphs: Generating Datasets with Varied Appearance and Identical Statistics through Simulated Annealing" <doi:10.1145/3025453.3025912>.

Percentile

Provides a client for (1) querying the DHS API for survey indicators and metadata (<https://api.dhsprogram.com/#/index.html>), (2) identifying surveys and datasets for analysis, (3) downloading survey datasets from the DHS website, (4) loading datasets and associate metadata into R, and (5) extracting variables and combining datasets for pooled analysis.

Percentile

Supports the input and reproducible analysis of RTI MicroPEM output files.

matahari

Percentile

Conveniently log everything you type into the R console. Logs are are stored as tidy data frames which can then be analyzed using 'tidyverse' style tools.

sgpv

Percentile

Computation of second-generation p-values as described in Blume et al. (2018) <doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0188299> and Blume et al. (2019) <doi:10.1080/00031305.2018.1537893>. There are additional functions which provide power and type I error calculations, create graphs (particularly suited for large-scale inference usage), and a function to estimate false discovery rates based on second-generation p-value inference.

Makes it easy to insert 'emoji' based on either their name or a descriptive keyword.
