39. Hoe kun je met statistiek levens redden?
Met woord 'statistiek' maak je een gemiddelde verjaardag nou niet echt gezelliger. Gehannes met cijfers en medianen; een feestje is het niet. Dat is het WEL voor Daniël Oberski van Universiteit Utrecht. Hij nam zijn grenzeloze enthousiasme voor statistiek mee naar onze podcastbooth op het Betweter Festival en vertelt je in dit college hoe je met statistiek levens kunt redden. Dit is een samenwerking met NPO Focus.

SNStatComp/awesome-official-statistics-software: An awesome list of statistical software packages useful for creating and accessing official statistics.
An item on this list is awesome because

it is free, open source, and available for download;
it is confirmed to be used in the production of official statistics by at least one institute, or
it provides access to official statistics publications.

We prefer packages that are reasonably easy to install and use, that have at least one stable version, and that are actively maintained.

Methods of Comparison, Compared / Observable
Methods of Comparison, Compared
Log ratios are often used when considering growth, as with investment returns. For example, if a stock doubles and then halves, you’re back where you started: log⁡(21) log⁡(12)=0\log(\tfrac{2}{1}) \log(\tfrac{1}{2}) = 0log(12​) log(21​)=0. On the other hand if a stock goes up by fifty percent then down by fifty percent, you’ve lost twenty-five percent of your investment: (1×0.5)−(1.5×0.5)=−0.25(1 \times 0.5) - (1.5 \times 0.5) = -0.25(1×0.5)−(1.5×0.5)=−0.25. This is why log scales are commonly used in stock price charts, such as this change line chart and index chart.

ESRA | Deliverables & publications
ESRA (E-SURVEY OF ROAD USERS’ ATTITUDES) is a joint international initiative of 26 research centres and road safety institutes; the project has surveyed road users in 38 countries on 5 continents. The purpose of this network is to collect comparable data on the opinions, attitudes, and behaviour of road users concerning road safety and mobility, and to provide scientific evidence for policy making at the national and international levels. Vias institute initiated the project, and the first edition of the ESRA survey was launched in 2015. The institute continues to coordinate this fast-evolving endeavour, and the next edition will be in 2018.

Emulating R plots in Python – A Journey in Data
One of the simplest R commands that doesn’t have a direct equivalent in Python is plot() for linear regression models (wraps plot.lm() when fed linear models). While python has a vast array of plotting libraries, the more hands-on approach of it necessitates some intervention to replicate R’s plot(), which creates a group of diagnostic plots (residual, qq, scale-location, leverage) to assess model performance when applied to a fitted linear regression model.

Practical Guide to Cluster Analysis in R (book)
Although there are several good books on unsupervised machine learning/clustering and related topics, we felt that many of them are either too high-level, theoretical or too advanced. Our goal was to write a practical guide to cluster analysis, elegant visualization and interpretation.

The main parts of the book include:

distance measures,
partitioning clustering,
hierarchical clustering,
cluster validation methods, as well as,
advanced clustering methods such as fuzzy clustering, density-based clustering and model-based clustering.

Summated Rating Scale Construction | SAGE Publications Ltd
$20 ebook, was recommended by statistician.

The goal for any social scientist doing a survey is to develop a rating on some attitude, value or opinion - a summated rating scale. Aimed at helping researchers construct more effective scales, Spector shows how to determine the number of items necessary, the appropriate amount of response categories and the most productive wording of items, how to sort good items from bad (including item-remainder coefficients and Cronbach's alpha) and how to validate a scale, including dimensional validity from factor analysis. Written in a user-friendly manner, the book concludes with a step-by-step account of how to develop a summated rating scale based on classical test theory.
