We’ve recently pushed an update to brewscheme on the development branch and will update the distribution page files over the next few days. These changes are part of the version 1.0.0 release candidate 2 of the project. Updates and Changes to brewscheme The primary change for release candidate 2 involves the initial completion of the […]
The brewscheme toolkit for data visualization in Stata is almost ready for a stable version 1 release. All known bugs have been fixed and all of the planned features for version 1 have been implemented. More information can be found at the project page and source code repository.
The Stata program brewscheme (http://wbuchanan.github.io/brewscheme/brewtheme/) has been updated and now includes several features that provide even more flexibility to the end user. Check out the project page above to learn a bit more about the suite of tools bundled with the brewscheme package.
A colleague recently asked me about a native solution in Stata to create a graph of the ROCs for multiple predictors (e.g., independent variables, covariates, right-hand side variables, etc…). I thought it might be helpful to provide a post to illustrate how to do this using data from the Strategic Data Project’s College Going Toolkit.
