1. Appropriate statistical analysis for 2 groups with 3 possible outcomes

Hello, I think the Cochran-Armitage test may apply to your situation. See this LINK. Best
2. Correspondence analysis - fragment of text

The basic result of correspondence analysis is a scatter diagram – a perceptual map and set of measures that serves to assess the quality of representation of a multidimensional space on a surface. *I believe you may want to drop the reference to "perceptual map" and stick with scatter diagram...
3. Correspondence analysis - fragment of text

If you are willing to post it here, I would not mind to read it. While I know something about CA, that would allow people more knowledgable than me to jump in a provide further help. cheers. Gm
4. Statistical test to assess the relationship between an independent and dependent variable of an experiment

"to use the one-way ANOVA test to determine whether there is a statistically significant relationship between the density of beech and oak trees and altitude" Put that way, I believe 1-way Anova (or, better, a t-test since you have 2 groups) would test if there is a significant difference in...
5. Can you use factor analysis on a table has count data?

You're welcome. This is a nice, extremely easy to follow, article by M. Bendixen about CA in marketing research: A Practical Guide to the Use of Correspondence Analysis in Marketing Research Attached is the CA scatterplot, made with my CAinterprToolspackage, based on Table 6 of Bendixen's...
6. spatial regression with (partly) overlapping areas

Hello, I believe that other forums (more GIS- or Spatial Analysis-oriented) may provide help. Best
7. Can you use factor analysis on a table has count data?

I have seen in liyerature the use of FA for count data, but (to the best of my understanding) it was before the popularization of CA. CA reduces the number of dimensions useful to represent the table graphically, bringing to the fore latent patterns of association between rows and columns. So...
8. Can you use factor analysis on a table has count data?

Hello, For contingent tables like that, Correspondence Analysis is often used. It has some aspects in common to Factor Analysis, being a method of dimensionality reduction; however, CA is tailored for cross-tabulation and count data. CA is used, for instance, in marketing research to understand...
9. Submission of package to CRAN: problem grasping an Error

@trinker: Thanks for asking. As a matter of fact, eventually I managed to solve the issue and to push the package on CRAN. But I cannot remember how I fixed the error. If I am not mistaken, the problem was with the dataset which the function was using in the example. I recall using a dataset...
10. Submission of package to CRAN: problem grasping an Error

Hello, I have submitted an R package to CRAN; the package is quite small, as it features just one function and three toy datasets. Before submitting to CRAN for evaluation, I have run a check within RStudio (hitting the 'check' button), and fortunately I got no error nor warnings nor notes. I...
11. Canonical Correspondence Analysis: how to interpret results

I am not familiar with CCA, but it has indeed some aspects in common to other dimensionality-reduction techniques which I do know. I will try to give you my two cents on the matter. I think that your interpretation is essentially correct. If a dashed prolongation intersects the vector...
12. Function out of my package only works after being copied/pasted...Why?

Uhmmm....I see.... I will read those documents for sure. What I got from a quick overview is that Imports is "safer" than Depends. Seems ok. But, am I right in understanding that, if I use Imports instead of Depends, I should always indicate within a function of mine to which package a function...
13. Function out of my package only works after being copied/pasted...Why?

Thanks for your comment. Could you please elaborate a little more on "my suggestion to use imports when possible"? What does it mean using imports from a practical standopoint? EDIT: Am I supposed to modify the 'Description' file, and to switch from Depends to Imports?
14. Function out of my package only works after being copied/pasted...Why?

Sorry for not being clear, my bad. I mean that, when you run the function, it does not work. If you copy and paste the whole function into R, and then you re-run the function (will all the need arguments), it works.... Toy dataset # simulate toy data set.seed(12345) monthA_speed <-...
15. Function out of my package only works after being copied/pasted...Why?

Thanks @Dason for replying back. The package (working, if we exclude the windAver() function) is on GitHub. The issue I was describing is with the abovementioned windAver() function: LINK I have tried again, making some modifications (e.g., specifying from which dependency some confusing...
