Graphs of imputed censored y values

When using JAGS with censored data, the censored values are imputed to be consistent with the parameters of the model and the censoring limits. It's straight forward to record and graph the imputed values. Here are a couple of slides from my workshops ...

Visualizing classifier thresholds

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about the connection between prediction models and the decisions that they influence. There is a lot of theory around this, but communicating how the various pieces all fit together with the folks who will use and be impacted by these decisions can be challenging. One of the important conceptual pieces […]

Difference of means for paired data: Model the mean of the differences or the joint distribution

I'm regularly asked about how to analyze the difference of means for paired data, such as pre-treatment and post-treatment scores (for the same subjects), or, say, blood pressures of spouses, etc. The usual approach is merely to consider the difference...

scala-glm: Regression modelling in Scala

Introduction As discussed in the previous post, I’ve recently constructed and delivered a short course on statistical computing with Scala. Much of the course is concerned with writing statistical algorithms in Scala, typically making use of the scientific and numerical computing library, Breeze. Breeze has all of the essential tools necessary for building statistical algorithms, … Continue reading scala-glm: Regression modelling in Scala
