Thanks for providing data and code together with your article! I've attempted a reproduction as part of a manuscript under development, and was partly successful, which is really great. 馃帀

(and thanks for already fixing the license, #1)

Here is what I achieved and the changes I made and how far I got. I worked with the file Data Analysis and Visualization.R, as I was unsure about the differences between it and the Markdown file.

  • add a few lines of code to download the data at the start
  • make some educated guesses to fix non-existing objects: X10, USA2
  • make an educated guess to use file Input-Data/usa_trt_varnames_plots_0913.csv instead of the missing usa_trt_varnames.csv
  • moved CHECK MULTICOLLINEARITY code down so that is found (created later in the script
  • make number of runs and iterations configurable, so that I had some results with much smaller waiting time > I don't really worry about the actual results right now, just want to make sure the code runs, I'm happy to run the long analysis (parallelize it?) when the code works.
  • load library cluster so that silhouette() is available
  • added a guess where US_tract_2010.shp could be downloaded
  • try to fix deprecated ggplot2 function usage
  • add a gitignore file, ignoring some R-specific stuff but also the data folders
  • fixed a minor typo in the readme, replace some placeholders there, apply common Markdown formatting, fix headline formatting

You can see the changes in this comparison: master...nuest:master


I have a dendogram (of course looks different because of smaller number of runs)!


I have Figure 10 (sort of) !


I have another figure that looks quite bad...


I look forward to your comments regarding the changes. It would be great if you could help resolving some of the guesses I had to make.
