„One function to rule them all“ – visualization of regression models in #rstats w/ #sjPlot

I’m pleased to announce the latest update from my sjPlot-package on CRAN. Beside some bug fixes and minor new features, the major update is a new function, plot_model(), which is both an enhancement and replacement of sjp.lm(), sjp.glm(), sjp.lmer(), sjp.glmer() and sjp.int(). The latter functions will become deprecated in the next updates and removed somewhen in the future.

plot_model() is a „generic“ plot function that accepts many model-objects, like lm, glm, lme, lmerMod etc. It offers various plotting types, like estimates/coefficient plots (aka forest or dot-whisker plots), marginal effect plots and plotting interaction terms, and sort of diagnostic plots.

In this blog post, I want to describe how to plot estimates as forest plots.

More support for Bayesian analysis in the sj!-packages #rstats #rstan #brms

Another quick preview of my R-packages, especially sjPlot, which now also support brmsfit-objects from the great brms-package. To demonstrate the new features, I load all my „core“-packages at once, using the strengejacke-package, which is only available from GitHub. This package simply loads four packages (sjlabelled, sjmisc, sjstats and sjPlot).

Going Bayes #rstats

Some time ago I started working with Bayesian methods, using the great rstanarm-package. Beside the fantastic package-vignettes, and books like Statistical Rethinking or Doing Bayesion Data Analysis, I also found the ressources from Tristan Mahr helpful to both better understand Bayesian analysis and rstanarm. This motivated me to implement tools for Bayesian analysis into my packages, as well.

Due to the latest tidyr-update, I had to update some of my packages, in order to make them work again, so – beside some other features – some Bayes-stuff is now avaible in my packages on CRAN.
