Using Beta Regression to Better Model Norms in Political Psychology

I recently wrote a short working paper on how to use beta regression and how it helps take into account norms in correlational studies of ideology, politics, and prejudice. It is a little long for a blog post (and this platform does not support LaTeX), so I uploaded it as a working paper. Click here to download the paper.

I hope it is instructive and informative, and that it fills in a few gaps from previous papers. Please email me if you have any questions about it. As always, the code can be found over at my GitHub.
