321a Boyd Graduate Studies University of Georgia Athens, Georgia 30602 Introductory Materials¶ These materials are designed to offer an introduction to the use of R. Thank You! I have received a great deal of feedback from a number of people for various errors, typos, and dumb things. I have also written a book about programming R.

R Introduction We offer here a couple of introductory tutorials on basic R concepts. It serves as background material for our main tutorial series Elementary Statistics withR. The only hardware requirement for most of the R tutorials is a PC with the latest free open source R software installed. R has extensive documentation and active online community support. It is the perfect environment to get started in statistical computing. Installation R can be downloaded from one of the mirror sites in Using External Data R offers plenty of options for loading external data, including Excel, Minitab and SPSS files. R Session After R is started, there is a console awaiting for input. Variable Assignment We assign values to variables with the assignment operator "=". Functions R functions are invoked by its name, then followed by the parenthesis, and zero or more arguments. Comments All text after the pound sign "#" within the same line is considered a comment.

A Complete Tutorial to learn Data Science in R from Scratch Introduction R is a powerful language used widely for data analysis and statistical computing. It was developed in early 90s. Since then, endless efforts have been made to improve R’s user interface. This was possible only because of generous contributions by R users globally. But, what about Machine Learning ? My first impression of R was that it’s just a software for statistical computing. This is a complete tutorial to learn data science and machine learning using R. Note: No prior knowledge of data science / analytics is required. Table of Contents Basics of R Programming for Data ScienceWhy learn R ? Let’s get started ! Note: The data set used in this article is from Big Mart Sales Prediction. 1. Why learn R ? I don’t know if I have a solid reason to convince you, but let me share what got me started. The style of coding is quite easy.It’s open source. There are many more benefits. How to install R / R Studio ? You could download and install the old version of R. Basic Computations in R

Beginner's guide to R: Introduction Computerworld - R is hot. Whether measured by more than 4,400 add-on packages, the 18,000+ members of LinkedIn's R group or the close to 80 R Meetup groups currently in existence, there can be little doubt that interest in the R statistics language, especially for data analysis, is soaring. Why R? Because it's a programmable environment that uses command-line scripting, you can store a series of complex data-analysis steps in R. That also makes it easier for others to validate research results and check your work for errors -- an issue that cropped up in the news recently after an Excel coding error was among several flaws found in an influential economics analysis report known as Reinhart/Rogoff. The error itself wasn't a surprise, blogs Christopher Gandrud, who earned a doctorate in quantitative research methodology from the London School of Economics. Sure, you can easily examine complex formulas on a spreadsheet. Indeed, the mantra of "Make sure your work is reproducible!"

R-exercises – Two Way ANOVA in R Exercises One way analysis of variance helps us understand the relationship between one continuous dependent variable and one categorical independent variable. When we have one continuous dependent variable and more than one independent categorical variable we cannot use one way ANOVA. When we have two independent categorical variable we need to use two way ANOVA. When we have more than two categorical independent variables we need to use N way ANOVA. In two way ANOVA there are three hypotheses of interest as listed below H0: There is an effect of the first factor on the dependent continuous variable (main effect)H0: There is an effect of the second factor variable on the dependent continuous variable (main effect)H0: There is a combined effect of the first and second factor variable on the continuous dependent variable (interaction) The above hypotheses can be extended from two factor variables to N factor variables. The dependent variable is the number of moths in a trap. Exercise 1 Exercise 2
