``list: Multivariate Statistical Analysis for the Item Count Technique''



list is a publicly available R package that allows researchers to conduct a multivariate statistical analysis for the item count technique. This survey methodology is also known as the list experiment or the unmatched count technique is an alternative to the commonly used randomized response method. The package implements the methods described in Imai (2011) and Blair and Imai (2012), a Bayesian MCMC implementation of regression for the standard and multiple sensitive item list experiment designs including ceiling and floor effects and a random effects setup, and a Bayesian MCMC hierarchical regression model with up to three hierarchical groups.
