Software and Other Tools

I am interested in developing software that helps improve social science research. To that end, I have created several R packages with various coauthors.

  • auditr: Functions to make last name selection in audit studies easier. This software was developed to address the issues described in Charles Crabtree and Volha Chykina, "Last Name Selection in Audit Studies." Sociological Science, 5: 21-28.
    › Available on GitHub.
  • colorr: Color palettes for EPL, MLB, NBA, NHL, and NFL teams.
    › Available on CRAN and on GitHub.
    » CRAN activity:  
  • helprr: Convenience functions for data preparation and summarization.
    › Available on GitHub.
  • nomine: Functions to classify names based on gender, 6 U.S. ethnicities, or 39 leaf nationalities.
    › Available on CRAN and on GitHub.
    » CRAN activity:  
  • plotrr: Functions for making visual exploratory data analysis with nested data easier. 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.
    › Available on CRAN and on GitHub.
    » CRAN activity:  
  • universitas: Functions to retrieve domain names for universities.
    › Available on GitHub.

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 (2018).
