  • The research, which published Wednesday in the journal JAMA Psychiatry, was the first time possible links between early childhood sleep problems and adolescent psychotic experiences and borderline personality disorder (BPD) symptoms have been examined.
  • Prior research in Australia found that babies with persistent severe sleep problems in their first year were at greater risk for anxiety and emotional issues in later childhood.
  • Sleep problems in children and adolescents have been shown to predict the development of various emotional and behavioral problems, including depression, anxiety, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, risk-taking and aggression.

Pretty (Simple) Geospatial Data Visualization in R

  • In this tutorial, we’re going to be using 2010 Census data to show off the wonders of graphing with R’s ggplot2 library.
  • Florida & median age graph well because the high numbers of old and young combined make for a super pretty gradient (thank you, snow birds!).
  • We’re going to do this one more time, changing the state and the Census data we choose to use — I like providing two examples so someone can see how the code changes in response.
  • On a side note, you’ll notice that the range of the gradients changed drastically in the second example— because we’re plugging this in by hand, it’s important to play around with it until you’ve accurately depicted the full range and set an accurate median value (a little Googling can go a long way to avoid too much guesswork).
