I want to create an index to measure inequality in education. First of all, it would be necessary to identify the inequality within the 5 educational level. Therefore, I seperated 5 level to calculate index for each one of them. First, I will calculate the indicators and then the dimension index...
I am currently writing my thesis, and I need your help! I am researching the effect of functional diversity within project teams on their cooperation and performance. To measure diversity, I used Blau's index. This index ranges from 0 (totally homogeneous) to 1 (totally...

I'm doing research on some return series covering different periods. My data consists of transactions and I can thus calculate the returns on individual transaction pairs.
As I want to compare the returns per period, but most transactions overlap periods I would like to...
Hi, I am creating an index variable which is basically three variables added together. However, I need to make sure each participant answered all three variables. How can I delete cases so that each person has a value for variable one, two and three?
Many thanks, and hopefully when I am...

I have a question that I'm not sure how to tackle. Suppose I have a time-series of length 12,000 and would like to know where in the time-series that a prescribed threshold value is exceeded, say, 10 times in a row. That is, for example, if the time series has y values that range...
I'm a brand new R user, and I have what is probably a very easy question. I ran a simulation to figure out a probability question. I'll show the code below, but I was wondering if anybody could tell me a more efficient way to do what I've done.
The basic question is "If the correlation...
I am new to the board and tried to search for Hotelling's T but could not find an answer to my problem (the appropriate test statistic). I'm not sure if Hotelling's is the correct stat, or if one exists.
Setup: I have two samples of different sizes, A and B, drawn from different...
