mmiCATs: Cluster Adjusted t Statistic Applications

Simulation results detailed in Esarey and Menger (2019) <doi:10.1017/psrm.2017.42> demonstrate that cluster adjusted t statistics (CATs) are an effective method for correcting standard errors in scenarios with a small number of clusters. The 'mmiCATs' package offers a suite of tools for working with CATs. The mmiCATs() function initiates a 'shiny' web application, facilitating the analysis of data utilizing CATs, as implemented in the function from the 'clusterSEs' package. Additionally, the pwr_func_lmer() function is designed to simplify the process of conducting simulations to compare mixed effects models with CATs models. For educational purposes, the CloseCATs() function launches a 'shiny' application card game, aimed at enhancing users' understanding of the conditions under which CATs should be preferred over random intercept models.
