Abstract

The objective of this package is to perform statistical inference using an expressive statistical grammar that coheres with the tidyverse design framework. The package is centered around 4 main verbs, supplemented with many utilities to visualize and extract value from their outputs.

  • specify() allows you to specify the variable, or relationship between variables, that you’re interested in.
  • hypothesize() allows you to declare the null hypothesis.
  • generate() allows you to generate data reflecting the null hypothesis.
  • calculate() allows you to calculate a distribution of statistics from the generated data to form the null distribution.

Comments
