Extracting variables and estimates from SAS prediction models

SAS ods output statements provide a simple alternative to advanced text manipulation techniques.

The example below extracts selected variables from proc hpgenselect and use these in proc corr, proc gampl, which outputs predicted probabilities. A final ods output statement in proc logistic extracts the concordance index, i.e. the measure for second order predictive capabilities of the model given as the probability that two different observations are correctly ordered with respect to the model based risk score.

HackRF on Windows 8

This technical note is based on an extract from thread. I have made several changes and added recommendations. I have experienced lot of latency using GnuRadio and HackRF on Pentoo Linux, so I wanted to try out GnuRadio on Windows.

HackRF One is a transceiver, so besides SDR capabilities, it can also transmit signals, inkluding sweeping a given range, uniform and Gaussian signals. Pentoo Linux provides the most direct access to HackRF and toolboxes. Install Pentoo Linux on a separate drive, then you can use osmocom_siggen from a terminal to transmit signals such as near-field GSM bursts, which will only be detectable within a meter.

Installation of MGWin and cmake: Download and install the following packages:
- MinGW Setup (Go to the Installer directory and download setup file)
- CMake (I am using CMake 3.2.2 and I installed it in C:\CMake, this path is important in the commands we must send in the MinGW shell)
Download and extract the packages respectively in the path C:\MinGW\msys\…

Example: Beeswarm plot in R


data <- read.dta("C:/Users/hellmund/Documents/MyStataDataFile.dta")





png(file="C:/Users/hellmund/Documents/il6.png", bg="transparent")

beeswarm(data$il6~data$group,data=data, method=c("swarm"),pch=16,pwcol=data$Gender,xlab='',ylab='il6',ylim=c(0,20))


boxplot(data$il6~data$group, data=data, add = T, names = c("","",""), col="#0000ff22")

Real world split-plot designs

Google Earth picture from a blog on statistics. A real world example near Christchurch (NZ) of a split-plot design. Today things have completely changed on location as the forest has grown considerably. Google Earth coordinate link.
