I fit a model… now what?

August 23 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

# Abstract

This talk introduces `marginaleffects`, a unified interface to interpret the results of over 60 classes of models in `R`. `marginaleffects` allows users to compute and plot the key quantities of interest in most statistical analyses: predictions, contrasts, marginal effects (slopes), and marginal means. In addition, users can easily conduct hypothesis tests for arbitrary functions of a model’s parameters.

`marginaleffects` is fast, low-dependency, actively developed, and well documented. The package website hosts an extensive list of vignettes and case studies which illustrate how to interpret and report the results of a variety of models: Bayesian, GAMs, Mixed-Effects, causal inference, etc.
