iccbeta R package

A function and vignettes for computing an intraclass correlation described in Aguinis & Culpepper (in press). iccbeta quantifies the share of variance in a dependent variable that is attributed to group heterogeneity in slopes.


You can install iccbeta from CRAN using:


Or, you can be on the cutting-edge development version on GitHub using:

if(!requireNamespace("devtools")) install.packages("devtools")


To use the iccbeta package, load it into R using:


From there, calling the icc_beta() function with either a lmer() model object or the desired individual components will compute the intraclass correlation:

# Automatically calculate icc from model
results_model = icc_beta(<lmer-model>)

# Calculate icc from individual terms.
results_component = icc_beta(X, l2id, T, vy)


Steven Andrew Culpepper and Herman Aguinis
