Statistical Analysis with r

Statistical Analysis with r

Packt is pleased to announce Statistical Analysis with R, a new book that will help readers to understand R, its benefits, and to use it to maximize the impact of their data analysis. Written by John M. Quick, this book will guide readers to conduct and communicate their data analysis with R in the most effective manner.

R is an open source programming language and software environment for statistical computing and graphics. It is a GNU project, which is similar to the S language and was developed at Bell Laboratories by John Chambers and colleagues. R is an integrated suite of software facilities for data manipulation, calculation and graphical display, which includes an effective data handling and storage facility, and a suite of operators for calculations on arrays in particular matrices.

R will teach users to arrive at practical solutions by using R. Additionally, it will enable users to explore the fundamental elements of R, to import and organize their data, to use functions and statistical analysis to arrive at probable courses of action, and to communicate their results by means of charts, plots, graphs, and custom built visualizations.

Using this book, data analysts will be able to conduct superior data analysis in R, generate, customize, and export detailed charts, plots, and graphs, build their own custom data visualizations, program in the R language, create their own custom functions, extend the functionality of R via external packages, manage the R workspace and console, import external data into R, manipulate data using variables, execute a wide array of multi-argument and variable-argument functions, and develop and employ predictive regression models.

A practical step-by-step guide packed with clear examples and screenshots, this book is ideal for data analysts, business or information technology professionals, students, educators and researchers, who wish to organize, analyze, and visualize their data effectively in R. The book is out now and available from Packt. To read more about it, please visit:
