Traue Niemanden aus Neuenkirchen – Städte, Gemeinden, Ortsnamen und Postleitzahlen

Das Problem der doppelten Städtenamen in Deutschland

Bei der Darstellung von Information zu deutschen Städten und Gemeinden kann es bei der Zusammenführung von unterschiedlichen Datenquellen Probleme geben, da einige Ortsnamen auf dem Gebiet der BRD mehrfach vergeben sind. Auf der Grundlage der GADM (gadm.org) Daten für Deutschland wird hier gezeigt, dass beim Zusammenführen von Daten nicht ausreicht, neben den Ortsnamen auch die Zugehörigkeit zu Bundesland, Landkreis, Verwaltungsgemeinschaft zu berücksichtigen. Erst wenn auch die Information, ob es sich bei dem Ortsnamen um eine Stadt, eine Gemeinde oder ein Gemeinderfreies Gebiet handelt mit herangezogen wird, kann eine akkurate Zuordnung erreicht werden.

fall veg + lentil bowl w/ goji ginger tahini cream

I love sauce (not to be confused with a love for hitting the sauce). I love the taste-as-you-go nature of making one, re-working classics, coming up with wild new versions, and smothering my food with it, always. Most importantly, I like that I can make a jar-full and have some on hand. I think…

Log 16.08 – Random / fixed slopes / effects / intercepts! And why? Plus R Formulas

  • ger.: Mehrebenenanalye – Hierarchisch Lineare Modellierung
  • engl.: multilevel modelling – random effects modelling – hierachical linear modelling – mixed modelling – random coefficient modelling

What does random intercept mean? Is there a difference between random effect and random intercept model?

A random intercept model estimates separate intercepts for each unit of each level at which the intercept is permitted to vary. This is one kind of random effect model. Another kind of random effect model also includes random slopes, and estimates separate slopes (i.e. coefficients, betas, effects, etc. depending on your discipline) for each variable for each unit of each level at which that slope is permitted to vary.

Random effect modelling uses random intercepts to accommodate for multi level structure within data. Random slopes are an extension allowing to describe differences between slopes and correlation between intercepts and slopes.

Diagram Plotter

I wrote a little tool to create diagrams. I am mainly using it myself, but I also gave it to some people and they seem to use it from time to time. Just maybe, it might be also useful for you.

This tool plots a diagram with vertical data lines. It is especially useful for the display of ordinal survey data. It creates a PDF file that contains the diagram. With Inkscape installed you can also create a PNG File. The PDF file can be vectorized with the appropriate software (e.g. Inkscape) and than be manipulated and saved in different formats.

Grouped Median Function for R – gmedian (), mQ()

The formula for the median of grouped frequency distributions has a nice feature for analysing ordinal data – even if the data isn’t really grouped. This forumla computes the median and adds a decimal fraction value to it. The decimal fraction value is an estimate of where the median would be, if we were using a more granular scale. Especially social science data is often not available in a metric format. So using this formula is really helpful for making i.e. more differentiated comparisons between subsets of social data.

The Beginning

After a lot of hesitation I finally followed through. I got my own URL! I am planning on using this site for publishing stuff on social science – probably mostly concerned with quantitative empirical research, maybe I will also have some posts on photos and music.
