The accompanying codes reproduce all figures and statistics presented in “Controlling for multiple covariates” by Mark Tygert. This repository also provides the LaTeX and BibTeX sources required for replicating the paper.

Be sure to pip install hilbertcurve prior to running any of this software (the codes depend on HilbertCurve). Also be sure to gunzip codes/cup98lrn.txt prior to running codes/kddcup98.py.

The main files in the repository are the following:

tex/multidim.pdf PDF version of the paper

tex/multidim.tex LaTeX source for the paper

tex/multidim.bib BibTeX source for the paper

tex/diffs0.pdf tex/diffs1.pdf tex/sums0.pdf tex/sums1.pdf tex/partition.pdf Graphics for Subsection 2.3 of the paper

codes/acs.py Python script for processing the American Community Survey

codes/psam_h06.csv Microdata from the 2019 American Community Survey of the U.S. Census Bureau

codes/kddcup98.py Python script for processing the KDD Cup 1998 data

codes/cup98lrn.txt.gz Data from the 1998 KDD Cup

codes/synthetic.py Python script for generating and processing synthetic examples

codes/hilbert.pdf Plot of an approximation with 255 line segments to the Hilbert curve in 2D

codes/disjoint.py Functions for plotting differences between two subpops. with disjoint scores (redistributed from the GitHub repo fbcddisgraph)

codes/disjoint.py Functions for plotting differences of a subpop. from the full population (redistributed from the GitHub repo )

codes/subpop_weighted.py Functions for plotting differences of a subpop. from the full pop. with weights (redistributed from the GitHub repo fbcdgraph)

Regenerating all the figures requires running in the directory codes acs.py, kddcup98.py, and synthetic.py; issue the commands

cd codes
pip install hilbertcurve
gunzip cup98lrn.txt.gz
python acs.py --var 'MV'
python acs.py --var 'NOC'
python acs.py --var 'MV+NOC'
python acs.py --var 'NOC+MV'
python kddcup98.py
python synthetic.py
