Use R!

Use R!
71 Jahrgänge | 2006 - 2021


This series of inexpensive and focused books on R is aimed at practitioners. Books can discuss the use of R in a particular subject area (e.g., epidemiology, econometrics, psychometrics) or as it relates to statistical topics (e.g., missing data, longitudinal data). In most cases, books combine LaTeX and R so that the code for figures and tables can be put on a website. Authors should assume a background as supplied by Dalgaard’s Introductory Statistics with R or other introductory books so that each book does not repeat basic material.
