Simulation and Power Analysis of Generalized Linear Mixed Models Brandon LeBeau University of Iowa
Overview Power simglm package Shiny Demo Power Power is the ability to statistically detect a true effect (i.e. non-zero population effect). For simple models (e.g. t-tests, regression) there are closed form equations for generating power. R has routines for these: power.t.test, power.anova.test Gpower3 Power Example n <- seq(20, 1000, 5) power <- sapply(seq_along(n), function(i) power.

Extending accessibility of open-source statistical software to the masses: A shiny case study Brandon LeBeau University of Iowa
R R is an open source statistical programming language. Pros: Common statistical procedures are found in R Can extend functionality with packages/functions Cons: Need to be comfortable with code Flexibility of R R is powerful and flexible due to the many user written packages.
