Benchmarking using Tidyverse Data Management & Medicare Public Use Files
By Rachel Hayes We will: * Download Medicare public use files for part B providers, 2016. * Do some tidyverse data management. * Make some scores for the providers – probably using regression. Benchmarking. * How to stratify easily using group_by, nest, and mutate. More than one way to do it. * How to reshape data using gather and spread. * How we calculate marginal effect scores to communicate results to end users with no research or statistical background. It’s not ideal, but without it, they lack confidence in the results.

    What we're about

    R-Ladies Nashville is part of a worldwide organization to promote gender diversity in the R community. We aspire to encourage and support minority genders in Nashville interested in learning or sharing their knowledge of R. For more information, contact us at

    R-Ladies Nashville seeks to create a space where minority genders (including but not limited to cis/trans women, trans men, non-binary, genderqueer, agender) are empowered to teach and are comfortable with asking questions. We welcome all those who will help us toward that goal. Those identifying with minority genders can be leaders, mentors, and members/attendees; others are welcome to attend as guests of a member (+1 on RSVP). The R-Ladies Global Code of Conduct can be found here (, and full mission statement can be found here (
