Visual Tools for Big Analyses: Cross-study replication of bivariate growth models
Analytic projects that involve multiple sources of data (longitudinal studies) encounter the necessity to evaluate of vast number of statistical models with which the observed pattern of data are explored. Processing model estimation results (offer a text file) becomes a non-trivial task, and interpreting them becomes dauntingly arduous. The IALSAteam is developing software solutions for processing and visualizing large number of statistical models of longitudinal data.
This talk will explain the architecture of collaboration in the Portland Collective, demonstrate the use of reproducible reports in RStudiowith knitrand Shiny, and discuss the first results emerging from analyzing bivariate growth curve models of physical and cognitive processes in aging individuals.
