generalCorr (1.1.5)
Generalized Correlations and Plausible Causal Paths.
http://cran.rproject.org/web/packages/generalCorr
Since causal paths from data are important for all sciences, the package provides many sophisticated functions. causeSummBlk() gives easytointerpret causal paths. Let Z denote control variables and compare two flipped kernel regressions: X=f(Y, Z)+e1 and Y=g(X,Z)+e2. Our criterion Cr1 says that if e1*Y>e2*X then variation in X is more "exogenous or independent" than in Y and causal path is X to Y. Criterion Cr2 requires e2< r*(yx,z). The function parcorBMany() reports generalized partials between the first variable and all others. The package provides additional R tools for causal assessment, "outlier detection," and for numerical integration by the trapezoidal rule, stochastic dominance, pillar 3D charts, etc. We also provide functions for bootstrapbased statistical inference for causal paths. causeSummary() and causeSummBlk() are easiest to use functions.
