Product Description

Using the free, open source R language, scientists, financial analysts, public policy professionals and programmers can build powerful statistical models capable of answering many of their most challenging questions. But, for non-statisticians, R can be difficult to learn - and most books on the subject assume far too much knowledge to help them.

R for Non-Statisticians is the solution. Drawing on his extensive experience teaching new users through the NYC R User Group, professional statistician Jared Lander has written the perfect R tutorial for everyone who’s new to statistical programming and modeling. Offering extensive hands-on practice and sample code, Lander covers all this and more:

  • Downloading, installing, and getting started with R
  • Navigating and mastering the R environment
  • Learning basic techniques, from control statements to data manipulation
  • Importing data from SAS, SPSS, Stata, web sites, or elsewhere
  • Performing essential statistical tests
  • Building, comparing, and diagnosing models
  • Developing your own R packages
  • Connecting with and learning from the global R user community

By the time you’re done, you won’t just understand how to write R programs: you’ll be ready to use R to tackle the statistical problems you care about most.
