## Ebooks

Incorporating the latest R packages as well as new case studies and applications, Using R and RStudio for Data Management, Statistical Analysis, and Graphics, Second Edition covers the aspects of R most often used by statistical analysts. New users of R will find the book’s simple approach easy to understand while more sophisticated users will appreciate the invaluable source of task-oriented information.

New to the Second Edition

The use of RStudio, which increases the productivity of R users and helps users avoid error-prone cut-and-paste workflows New chapter of case studies illustrating examples of useful data management tasks, reading complex files, making and annotating maps, "scraping" data from the web, mining text files, and generating dynamic graphics New chapter on special topics that describes key features, such as processing by group, and explores important areas of statistics, including Bayesian methods, propensity scores, and bootstrapping New chapter on simulation that includes examples of data generated from complex models and distributions A detailed discussion of the philosophy and use of the knitr and markdown packages for R New packages that extend the functionality of R and facilitate sophisticated analyses Reorganized and enhanced chapters on data input and output, data management, statistical and mathematical functions, programming, high-level graphics plots, and the customization of plots

Easily Find Your Desired Task

Conveniently organized by short, clear descriptive entries, this edition continues to show users how to easily perform an analytical task in R. Users can quickly find and implement the material they need through the extensive indexing, cross-referencing, and worked examples in the text. Datasets and code are available for download on a supplementary website.

Includes worked examples across a wide variety of applications, tasks, and graphics

Using R for Data Management, Statistical Analysis, and Graphics presents an easy way to learn how to perform an analytical task in R, without having to navigate through the extensive, idiosyncratic, and sometimes unwieldy software documentation and vast number of add-on packages. Organized by short, clear descriptive entries, the book covers many common tasks, such as data management, descriptive summaries, inferential procedures, regression analysis, multivariate methods, and the creation of graphics.

Through the extensive indexing, cross-referencing, and worked examples in this text, users can directly find and implement the material they need. The text includes convenient indices organized by topic and R syntax. Demonstrating the R code in action and facilitating exploration, the authors present example analyses that employ a single data set from the HELP study. They also provide several case studies of more complex applications. Data sets and code are available for download on the book’s website.

Helping to improve your analytical skills, this book lucidly summarizes the aspects of R most often used by statistical analysts. New users of R will find the simple approach easy to understand while more sophisticated users will appreciate the invaluable source of task-oriented information.

The first edition of this popular guide provided a path between SAS and R using an easy-to-understand, dictionary-like approach. Retaining the same accessible format, SAS and R: Data Management, Statistical Analysis, and Graphics, Second Edition explains how to easily perform an analytical task in both SAS and R, without having to navigate through the extensive, idiosyncratic, and sometimes unwieldy software documentation. The book covers many common tasks, such as data management, descriptive summaries, inferential procedures, regression analysis, and graphics, along with more complex applications.

New to the Second Edition

This edition now covers RStudio, a powerful and easy-to-use interface for R. It incorporates a number of additional topics, including using application program interfaces (APIs), accessing data through database management systems, using reproducible analysis tools, and statistical analysis with Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods and finite mixture models. It also includes extended examples of simulations and many new examples.

Enables Easy Mobility between the Two Systems

Through the extensive indexing and cross-referencing, users can directly find and implement the material they need. SAS users can look up tasks in the SAS index and then find the associated R code while R users can benefit from the R index in a similar manner. Numerous example analyses demonstrate the code in action and facilitate further exploration. The datasets and code are available for download on the book’s website.

Contemporary data science requires a tight integration of knowledge from statistics, computer science, mathematics, and a domain of application. This book will help readers with some background in statistics and modest prior experience with coding develop and practice the appropriate skills to tackle complex data science projects. The book features a number of exercises and has a flexible organization conducive to teaching a variety of semester courses.
