Open-Source Software

Our peer-reviewed, open source statistical software packages

We believe that transparency is the key to the highest data quality. We use only open source software. We open up the critical elements of our software for peer-review.

  • We use open-source software, there is no vendor lock-in.

  • Our data products go through many, automated (unit) tests, replacing countless error-prone human validation working hours.

  • The critical elements of our code go through external validation and peer-review by computational statisticians and data scientists.
