Software and Other Tools

I'm interested in developing software that makes conducting social science easier. To that end, I've created several R packages (listed below) with various coauthors.

  • auditr: Functions to make last name selection in audit studies easier. Available on GitHub.
    This software was developed to address the issues described in Charles Crabtree and Volha Chykina, "Last Name Selection in Audit Studies." Forthcoming at Sociological Science.
  • colorr: Color palettes for EPL, MLB, NBA, NHL, and NFL teams. Available on CRAN and GitHub.

  • helprr: Convenience functions and color palettes to improve R use. Available on GitHub.
  • nomine: Functions to classify names based on gender, 6 U.S. ethnicities, or 39 leaf nationalities. Available on CRAN and GitHub.

  • plotrr: Functions for making visual exploratory data analysis with nested data easier. Available on CRAN and GitHub.

    This software is introduced in Charles Crabtree and Michael J. Nelson. 2017. "plotrr: Functions for Making Visual Exploratory Data Analysis with Nested Data Easier.'' Journal of Open Source Software, 10.5281/zenodo.290608.

I also post (potentially) useful code snippets (and other things) on my GitHub account. The emailaudits repository, for example, contains bits of code that can be used to conduct audit (or correspondence) studies, like the ones described in Crabtree (2018), Butler and Crabtree (2017), and Gell-Redman, Visalvanich, Crabtree, and Fariss (Forthcoming).
