A Simulation Tool to Determine the Required Sample Size for Repertory Grid Studies

Simulation tool to facilitate determination of required sample size to achieve category saturation for studies using multiple repertory grids in conjunction with content analysis.

Record Linkage Toolkit

Functions to assist in performing probabilistic record linkage and deduplication: generating pairs, comparing records, em-algorithm for estimating m- and u-probabilities, forcing one-to-one matching. Can also be used for pre- and post-processing for machine learning methods for record linkage.

Analyzing Pointer Years and Components of Resilience

Functions to calculate and plot event and pointer years as well as components of resilience. Designed for dendroecological applications, but also suitable to analyze patterns in other ecological time series.

Google Analytics API into R

Interact with the Google Analytics APIs < https://developers.google.com/analytics/>, including the Core Reporting API (v3 and v4), Management API, and Multi-Channel Funnel API.

Generalized Survival Models

R implementation of generalized survival models (GSMs) and smooth accelerated failure time (AFT) models. For the GSMs, g(S(t|x))=eta(t,x) for a link function g, survival S at time t with covariates x and a linear predictor eta(t,x). The main assumption is that the time effect(s) are smooth. For fully parametric models with natural splines, this re-implements Stata's 'stpm2' function, which are flexible parametric survival models developed by Royston and colleagues. We have extended the parametric models to include any smooth parametric smoothers for time. We have also extended the model to include any smooth penalized smoothers from the 'mgcv' package, using penalized likelihood. These models include left truncation, right censoring, interval censoring, gamma frailties and normal random effects. For the smooth AFTs, S(t|x) = S_0(t*eta(t,x)), where the baseline survival function S_0(t)=exp(-exp(eta_0(t))) is modelled for natural splines for eta_0, and the time-dependent cumulative acceleration factor eta(t,x)=\int_0^t exp(eta_1(u,x)) du for log acceleration factor eta_1(u,x).

Merged Block Randomization

Package to carry out merged block randomization, a restricted randomization method designed for small clinical trials (at most 100 subjects) or trials with small strata, for example in multicentre trials. It can be used for more than two groups or unequal randomization ratios.

Prediction of Therapeutic Success

In personalized medicine, one wants to know, for a given patient and his or her outcome for a predictor (pre-treatment variable), how likely it is that a treatment will be more beneficial than an alternative treatment. This package allows for the quantification of the predictive causal association (i.e., the association between the predictor variable and the individual causal effect of the treatment) and related metrics. Part of this software has been developed using funding provided from the European Union's 7th Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under Grant Agreement no 602552.

Collaborative Targeted Maximum Likelihood Estimation

Implements the general template for collaborative targeted maximum likelihood estimation. It also provides several commonly used C-TMLE instantiation, like the vanilla/scalable variable-selection C-TMLE (Ju et al. (2017)

Cross-Validated Area Under the ROC Curve Confidence Intervals

This package contains various tools for working with and evaluating cross-validated area under the ROC curve (AUC) estimators. The primary functions of the package are ci.cvAUC and ci.pooled.cvAUC, which report cross-validated AUC and compute confidence intervals for cross-validated AUC estimates based on influence curves for i.i.d. and pooled repeated measures data, respectively. One benefit to using influence curve based confidence intervals is that they require much less computation time than bootstrapping methods. The utility functions, AUC and cvAUC, are simple wrappers for functions from the ROCR package.

Collection of Utility Functions

A handy collection of utility functions designed to aid in package development, plotting and scientific research. Package development functionalities includes among others tools such as cross-referencing package imports with the description file, analysis of redundant package imports, editing of the description file and the creation of package badges for GitHub. Some of the other functionalities include automatic package installation and loading, plotting points without overlap, creating nice breaks for plots, overview tables and many more handy utility functions.
