RRreg: Randomized Response

RRreg allows for univariate and multivariate analyses of randomized response (RR) designs. RR designs are used in surveys to obtain valid prevalence estimates of sensitive attributes (e.g., cocaine abuse) by ensuring complete anonymity of the respondents. An overview of the RR designs available in RRreg as well as examples can be found in our paper:

Further examples and model details are illustrated in the package vignette: RRreg Vignette
