R-packages

epicontacts

A collection of tools for representing epidemiological contact data, composed of case line lists and contacts between cases. Also contains procedures for data handling, interactive graphics, and statistics.

hei

Calculates Healthy Eating Index (HEI) scores for National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) data sets to facilitate analysis of demographic and dietary differences.

rrefine

‘OpenRefine’ (formerly ‘Google Refine’) is a popular, open source data cleaning software. This package enables users to programmatically trigger data transfer between R and ‘OpenRefine’. Available functionality includes project import, export and deletion.

simpleCache

Provides intuitive functions for caching R objects, encouraging reproducible, restartable, and distributed R analysis. The user selects a location to store caches, and then provides nothing more than a cache name and instructions (R code) for how to produce the R object. Also provides some advanced options like environment assignments, recreating or reloading caches, and cluster compute bindings (using the ‘batchtools’ package) making it flexible enough for use in large-scale data analysis projects.
