Covering a wide range of topics, from probability and sampling distribution to statistical theorems and chi-square, this introductory book helps readers learn not only how to use formulae to calculate statistics, but also how specific statistics fit into the overall research process. Learning Statistics Using R covers data input from vectors, arrays, matrices and data frames, as well as the input of data sets from SPSS, SAS, STATA and other software packages.
Schumacker's text provides the freedom to effectively calculate, manipulate, and graphically display data, using R, on different computer operating systems without the expense of commercial software.
Learning Statistics Using R places statistics within the framework of conducting research, where statistical research hypotheses can be directly addressed.
Each chapter includes discussion and explanations, tables and graphs, and R functions and outputs to enrich readers' understanding of statistics through statistical computing and modeling.
