Data Analytics Workouts: Recent Posts using R

Below are some recent posts regarding my work learning R, where I took prior work I had done in Excel, country correlations on human welfare, or F#, solving Project Euler problems, and re-executed them, and to some degree improved upon them.

Plotting Text Frequency and Distribution using R for Spinoza's A Theological-Political Treatise [Part I]

Inequality Kills: Correlation, with Graph and Least Square, of Gini Coefficient (Inequality) and Infant Death

Chi-Square in R on by State Politics (Red/Blue) and Income (Higher/Lower)

Logistic Regression in R on Politics and Income

Multiple Regression with R, on IQ for Gini and Linguistic Diversity

Linear Regression with R, on IQ for Gini and Linguistic Diversity

Mean Median, and Mode with R, using Country-level IQ Estimates

Correlations within with Hofstede's Cultural Values, Diversity, GINI, and IQ

Data Analytics Workouts: Recent Posts using Python

I have been exploring Python and R for manipulating data. My long terms goals for this exercise, that I document on the blog, are to develop skills in the aforementioned languages, as well as extend my abilities with F# and explore other technologies like NoSQL Db's. Things like Hadoop and Spark are likely much farther down the road, if at all.

New NuGet Publication - API Access

I recently published a new NuGet libraries, API Access, a simple package for easy access to API's, but only currently supporting Glassdoor. It returns the JSON result, as well as converts the result into a full range of necessary classes, accessed via RootObject.

Review: Macroanalysis (Topics in the Digital Humanities)

Macroanalysis (Topics in the Digital Humanities)Macroanalysis by Matthew L. Jockers
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Great foray into data mining literature, although at times a bit tedious and redundant. Conceptually useful, for general concepts in data mining, but with no actual coding.
