A Handbook of Statistical Analyses Using R, Second Edition by Torsten Hothorn, Brian S. Everitt

By Torsten Hothorn, Brian S. Everitt

A confirmed consultant for simply utilizing R to successfully research Data

Like its bestselling predecessor, A guide of Statistical Analyses utilizing R, moment Edition presents a consultant to facts research utilizing the R approach for statistical computing. each one bankruptcy incorporates a short account of the correct statistical historical past, in addition to applicable references.

New to the second one Edition

  • New chapters on graphical monitors, generalized additive versions, and simultaneous inference
  • A new part on generalized linear combined types that completes the dialogue at the research of longitudinal facts the place the reaction variable doesn't have a typical distribution
  • New examples and extra workouts in different chapters
  • A re-creation of the HSAUR package deal (HSAUR2), that is to be had from CRAN

This variation maintains to supply common descriptions of ways to behavior a variety of statistical analyses utilizing R, from uncomplicated inference to recursive partitioning to cluster research. targeting find out how to use R and interpret the consequences, it presents scholars and researchers in lots of disciplines with a self-contained technique of utilizing R to investigate their data.

1. The plot, hist and boxplot functions have already been introduced in Chapter 1 and we want to produce a plot where both techniques are applied at once. The layout function organises two independent plots on one plotting device, for example on top of each other. Using this relatively simple technique (more advanced methods will be introduced later) we have to make sure that the x-axis is the same in both graphs. 9 Now, plotting both the histogram and the boxplot requires setting up the plotting device with equal space for two independent plots on top of each other.

3. If the independent variable is a factor, a boxplot representation is a natural choice. 1 Histograms of the market value and the logarithm of the market value for the companies contained in the Forbes 2000 list. 4. Prior to calling the plot function on our data, we have to remove empty levels from the country variable, because otherwise the x-axis would show all and not only the selected countries. This task is most easily performed by subsetting the corresponding factor with additional argument drop = TRUE.

Names = 1). csv can be used to read comma separated files. table by default guesses the class of each variable from the specified file. In our case, character variables are stored as factors R> class(csvForbes2000[,"name"]) [1] "factor" which is only suboptimal since the names of the companies are unique. equal(csvForbes2000, Forbes2000) [1] TRUE The argument colClasses expects a character vector of length equal to the number of columns in the file. xls") R> sqlQuery(cnct, "select * from \"Forbes2000\\$\"") © 2010 by Taylor and Francis Group, LLC BASIC DATA MANIPULATION 11 The function odbcConnectExcel opens a connection to the specified Excel or Access file which can be used to send SQL queries to the data base engine and retrieve the results of the query.
