dotwhisker

Solt, Frederick, and Yue Hu. 2015. dotwhisker: Dot-and-Whisker Plots of Regression Results. The Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN).

CRAN version Travis-CI Build Status

dotwhisker is an R package for quickly and easily generating dot-and-whisker plots of regression results, either directly from model objects or from tidy data frames. It provides a convenient way to create highly customizable plots for presenting and comparing statistics. It can be used to plot coefficients or other estimates (e.g., predicted probabilities) within a model or compare them across different models. The estimates are presented as dots with confidence interval whiskers.

To install:

  • the latest released version: install.packages("dotwhisker").
  • the latest development version: remotes::install_github("fsolt/dotwhisker").

interplot

Solt, Frederick, and Yue Hu. 2015. interplot: Plot the Coefficients of Variables in Interaction Terms. The Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN).

CRAN version

interplot is a tool for plotting the conditional coefficients (“marginal effects”) of variables included in multiplicative interaction terms. The function plots the changes in the coefficient of one variable in a two-way interaction term conditional on the value of the other included variable. The resulting plot also includes simulated 95% confidential intervals of these coefficients.

To install:

  • the latest released version: install.packages("interplot").
  • the latest development version: remotes::install_github("sammo3182/interplot").

pewdata

Solt, Frederick, and Yue Hu. 2016. pewdata: Reproducible Retrieval of Pew Research Center Datasets. The Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN).

CRAN version Travis-CI Build Status

pewdata is an R package that provides reproducible, programmatic access to survey datasets from the Pew Research Center.

To install:

  • the latest released version: install.packages("pewdata")
  • the latest development version: remotes::install_github("fsolt/pewdata")

gesisdata

Solt, Frederick. 2020. gesisdata: Reproducible Retrieval from the GESIS Data Archive. The Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN).

CRAN version Travis-CI Build Status

The GESIS Data Archive makes available thousands of invaluable social scientific surveys, including, among many others, the ALLBUS, the European Values Survey, the Eurobarometer, and the International Social Survey Program. Researchers taking advantage of these datasets, however, are caught in a bind. The archive’s terms and conditions bar dissemination of downloaded datasets to third parties. But to ensure that one’s work can be reproduced, assessed, and built upon by others, one must provide access to the raw data one employed.

The gesisdata package cuts this knot by providing programmatic, reproducible access to specified GESIS datasets from within R for registered users.

To install:

  • the latest released version: install.packages("gesisdata")
  • the latest development version: remotes::install_github("fsolt/gesisdata")

For more details, check out the vignette.
