Software and Data Requirements
You will need the free R software (www.cran.r-project.org) or Stata (www.stata.com) installed on your computer (and, as an option, the free "shiny", "shinydashboard", and "ggplot2" R packages to use RCT-YES-Graph in R). No programming knowledge is required.
You will need a data file accessible from your computer, which will be used in the analysis. This file should be a .dta file if you plan to use Stata or a .rds file if you will use R. Instructions for converting Excel (.CSV) files into an R file can be found in the User’s Manual.

- RCT-YES can now accomodate designs where individuals or groups are randomized to more than two research groups
- For clustered designs, the regression models are now estimated using individual level data (if provided) rather than data averaged to the cluster level
