Model selection relies on choices by the researcher and these are often artbitrary and sometimes driven by a desire for significant results.

Specification curve example

I was inspired by these amazing examples of specification curves by Julia Rohrer and Amy Orben, so I wrote some code to generate a curve like this: Below is code to create a specification curve using a toy example from the airquality dataset. Enjoy! load packages library(tidyverse) library(lme4) library(MuMIn) library(cowplot) run models Run all possible nested models using the dredge function from the MuMIn package. # set na.
