**Sensitivity Analyses for Unmeasured Confounding in Meta-Analyses** (**ConfoundedMeta**)

Conducts sensitivity analyses for unmeasured confounding in random-effects meta-analysis per Mathur & VanderWeele (in preparation). Given output from a random-effects meta-analysis with a relative risk outcome, computes point estimates and inference for: (1) the proportion of studies with true causal effect sizes more extreme than a specified threshold of scientific significance; and (2) the minimum bias factor and confounding strength required to reduce to less than a specified threshold the proportion of studies with true effect sizes of scientifically significant size. Creates plots and tables for visualizing these metrics across a range of bias values.

**Robust Bayesian Linear Mixed-Effects Models using ABC** (**robustBLME**)

Bayesian robust fitting of linear mixed effects models through weighted likelihood equations and approximate Bayesian computation as proposed by Ruli et al. (2017) <arXiv:1706.01752>.

**A Consistent and Intuitive Platform to Explore the Dependencies of Packages on the Comprehensive R Archive Network Like Repositories** (**pkggraph**)

Interactively explore various dependencies of a package(s) (on the Comprehensive R Archive Network Like repositories) and perform analysis using tidy philosophy. Most of the functions return a ‘tibble’ object (enhancement of ‘dataframe’) which can be used for further analysis. The package offers functions to produce ‘network’ and ‘igraph’ dependency graphs. The ‘plot’ method produces a static plot based on ‘ggnetwork’ and ‘plotd3’ function produces an interactive D3 plot based on ‘networkD3’.

**A Text Mining Toolkit for Chinese** (**tmcn**)

A Text mining toolkit for Chinese, which includes facilities for Chinese string processing, Chinese NLP supporting, encoding detecting and converting. Moreover, it provides some functions to support ‘tm’ package in Chinese.

**The Chi-Square Periodogram** (**xsp**)

The circadian period of a time series data is predicted and the statistical significance of the periodicity are calculated using the chi-square periodogram.
