Publisher Comments:

Learn how to perform data analysis with the R language and software environment, even if you have little or no programming experience. With the tutorials in this hands-on guide, youll learn how to use the essential R tools you need to know to analyze data, including data types and programming concepts.

The second half of Learning R shows you real data analysis in action by covering everything from importing data to publishing your results. Each chapter in the book includes a quiz on what youve learned, and concludes with exercises, most of which involve writing R code.

  • Write a simple R program, and discover what the language can do
  • Use data types such as vectors, arrays, lists, data frames, and strings
  • Execute code conditionally or repeatedly with branches and loops
  • Apply R add-on packages, and package your own work for others
  • Learn how to clean data you import from a variety of sources
  • Understand data through visualization and summary statistics
  • Use statistical models to pass quantitative judgments about data and make predictions
  • Learn what to do when things go wrong while writing data analysis code

Synopsis:

If you have basic programming skills and do any kind of data analysis, you need R in your toolkit. This book teaches you how to be productive with this important programming language for statistics by covering everything about R you need to know, including:

  • Data gathering from different sources such as web scraping and databases
  • Data transformation/manipulation that can save you hours
  • Visualization that provides a great way of showing insights into datasets
  • Modelling that shows just how many different analyses can be done in R
