Synopsis: R is a powerful and free software system for data analysis and graphics, with over 1,200 add-on packages available. This book introduces R using SAS and SPSS terms with which statisticians, analysts, and researchers are already familiar. It demonstrates which of the add-on packages are most like SAS and SPSS and compares them to R’s built-in functions. It steps through over 30 programs written in all three packages, comparing and contrasting the packages’ differing approaches. When finished, you will be able to import data, manage and transform it, create publication quality graphics, and perform basic statistical analyses.
