In R, there are two main packages for estimating mixed effects models: nlme and lme4. They have certain differences. (There are also other packages.) In 2010, we had a well-received question: How to ...
I just wanted to try and see if I can cook up some simple Python routines to allow translation of commonly used models into code that we can then use some inference engine on. So, basically I am ...
Recently, I wrote a small package to provide a formula interface (and some other bits) to the glmnet R package. This came about after I posted on StackOverflow ...
Our community-modifiable default off-topic close reasons are Self-study questions (including textbook exercises, old exam papers, and homework) that seek to understand the concepts are welcome, but ...
I noticed that multiple questions that ask about R packages are voted to migrate to SO (I also do this). This is consistent with the fact that CV is not about programming. On the other hand, "I am ...
This is a provocative question: should we send "How do I do this in R/SAS/Python/Stata/SPSS" questions to the DataScience, now that it's open? Data cleaning is never a programming question, as it ...
There has been a lot of discussion about software-related questions on CV (see here or here for examples...). And yet there is still no clear idea and guidance on what CV is, what it strives to be and ...
There has been discussion over how more of the R community could be brought into the StackExchange fold. (See also this Question on SO Meta.) If I were to sum-up feelings expressed thus far, we are ...
A discussion in fall 2010 considered the extent to which purely software-related questions would be welcome on this site. It didn't really reach a conclusion, but one useful suggestion that arose is ...
Possible Duplicate: Should we allow more computing questions I noticed there are a few discussions already about whether or not to allow for programming questions, like here and here. I assume ...
Earlier today I asked a question (Mixed Effects Models) and received a response. I want to post follow-up question that asks for R code to achieve the solution provided by the response, but is this ...
Pursuant to the recent apparent consensus (How much programming here?) that this site should accept some questions on programming statistical computations, I would like to inquire whether the site ...
I've been thinking about whether this site should incorporate more computing questions. I think the current position of this site can be summarised by this question (which I asked!). Why change I ...
Of course in context of R-versus-Clojure, I felt it needs external discussion. So, I believe that there are two possible sorts of such questions: An algorithmic question like, "How to implement X?"...
