I would like to illustrate a way which omitted variables interfere in logistic regression inference (or coefficient estimation). These effects are different than what is seen in linear regression, and possibly different than some expectations or intuitions.

This is an interesting article and there’s a really good comment helping to explain this effect in epidemiology.

Are you ready to dive into the world of data visualization in R? One powerful tool at your disposal is the box plot, also known as a box-and-whisker plot. This versatile chart can help you understand the distribution of your data and identify potential outliers. In this blog post, we’ll walk you through the process of creating box plots using R’s ggplot2 package, using the airquality dataset as an example. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced R programmer, you’ll find something valuable here.

Click through to learn what kind of information a box plot can provide, as well as how to create one using a variety of R libraries.

Vectors in R are supposed to be of homogeneous data type. You can use a list as the container if there are mixed data types, such as numbers and strings. The list and data frame are closely related in R. The data frame is probably more useful because it reflects how we usually collect statistics. In this post, you will learn about them. Specifically, you will know:

• What are lists and data frames in R
• How to manipulate lists and data frames

With a rising prices of utilities like gas and power and winter still being in progress it might be good to check your usage from time to time. With electricity and TOU meters, it is easy, retailer does that for you and you can check your consumption and projected bill at any time with a granularity of 30 minute interval (sometimes even less).
With gas (and water) it is trickier, those are being read manually every 2 – 3 months so you may be up for a surprise when the bill arrives.

I had a co-worker who tracked this stuff in meticulous detail over a period of several years, to the point where he knew exactly how much propane to buy in August (when prices are lowest) to get through winter with minimum waste.

Several days ago, I got a service request where we had a conversation about the differences about SQL Server Events: Attention Signal and User Error Message. In the realm of SQL Server, a well-rounded understanding of various events is crucial for optimizing performance, troubleshooting issues, and maintaining a robust database environment. In this article, we’ll delve into three important events: “Attention Signal,” “User Error Message,” and “Command Timeout.” We’ll explore their significance, scenarios where they occur, and provide a practical script to simulate and capture these events. Let’s dive in!

Read on to understand the intent of each of these event types.
