behaviorchange: Tools for Behavior Change Researchers and Professionals

Contains specialised analyses and visualisation tools for behavior change science. These facilitate conducting determinant studies (for example, using confidence interval-based estimation of relevance, CIBER, or CIBERlite plots, see Crutzen, Noijen & Peters (2017) <doi:10.3389/fpubh.2017.00165>), systematically developing, reporting, and analysing interventions (for example, using Acyclic Behavior Change Diagrams), and reporting about intervention effectiveness (for example, using the Numbers Needed for Change, see Gruijters & Peters (2017) <doi:10.31234/>), and computing the required sample size (using the Meaningful Change Definition, see Gruijters & Peters (2019) <doi:10.31234/>). This package is especially useful for researchers in the field of behavior change or health psychology and to behavior change professionals such as intervention developers and prevention workers.
