IntervalQuestionStat: Tools to Deal with Interval-Valued Responses in Questionnaires

A user-friendly toolbox for doing the statistical analysis of interval-valued responses in questionnaires measuring intrinsically imprecise human attributes or features (attitudes, perceptions, opinions, feelings, etc.). In particular, this package provides S4 classes, methods, and functions in order to compute basic arithmetic and statistical operations with interval-valued data; prepare customized plots; associate each interval-valued response to its equivalent Likert-type and visual analogue scales answers through the minimum theta-distance and the mid-point criteria; analyze the reliability of respondents' answers from the internal consistency point of view by means of Cronbach's alpha coefficient; and simulate interval-valued responses in this type of questionnaires. The package also incorporates some real-life data that can be used to illustrate its working with several non-trivial reproducible examples. The methodology used in this package is based in many theoretical and applied publications from SMIRE+CoDiRE (Statistical Methods with Imprecise Random Elements and Comparison of Distributions of Random Elements) Research Group (<>) from the University of Oviedo (Spain).
