Dave Armstrong's Miscellaneous Functions

Miscellaneous set of functions I use in my teaching either at the University of Western Ontario or the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) Summer Program in Quantitative Methods. Broadly, the functions help with presentation and interpretation of LMs and GLMs, but also implement some new tools like Alternating Least Squares Optimal Scaling for dependent variables, a Bayesian analog to the ALSOS algorithm. There are also tools to help understand interactions in both LMs and binary GLMs.

DAMisc is a package that I maintain to support my teaching at UWM and the ICPSR Summer Program. Broadly speaking it contains a set of routines that aid in the interpretation and presentation of regression models (including linear models, GLMs and other limited dependent variables models). I have tried not to duplicate functionality available elsewhere, rather to fill in with my own functions when other software proves inadequate or too cumbersome. The package can be installed directly from this repository with:

install_github("damisc", username="davidaarmstrong")
