R is now the most widely used statistical software in academic science and it is rapidly expanding into other fields such as finance. R is almost limitlessly flexible and powerful, hence its appeal, but can be very difficult for the novice user. There are no easy pull-down menus, error messages are often cryptic and simple tasks like importing your data or exporting a graph can be difficult and frustrating. Introductory R is written for the novice user who knows a little about statistics but who hasn't yet got to grips with the ways of R. This new edition is completely revised and greatly expanded with new chapters on the basics of descriptive statistics and statistical testing, considerably more information on statistics and six new chapters on programming in R. Topics covered include: A walkthrough of the basics of R's command line interface Data structures including vectors, matrices and data frames R functions and how to use them Expanding your analysis and plotting capacities with add-in R packages A set of simple rules to follow to make sure you import your data properly An introduction to the script editor and advice on workflow A detailed introduction to drawing publication-standard graphs in R How to understand the help files and how to deal with some of the most common errors that you might encounter. Basic descriptive statistics The theory behind statistical testing and how to interpret the output of statistical tests Thorough coverage of the basics of data analysis in R with chapters on using chi-squared tests, t-tests, correlation analysis, regression, ANOVA and general linear models What the assumptions behind the analyses mean and how to test them using diagnostic plots Explanations of the summary tables produced for statistical analyses such as regression and ANOVA Writing your own functions in R Using table operations to manipulate matrices and data frames Using conditional statements and loops in R programmes. Writing longer R programmes. The techniques of statistical analysis in R are illustrated by a series of chapters where experimental and survey data are analysed. There is a strong emphasis on using real data from real scientific research, with all the problems and uncertainty that implies, rather than well-behaved made-up data that give ideal and easy to analyse results.
Annotation This is a practical, step by step guide that will help you to quickly become proficient in the data analysis using R. The book is packed with clear examples, screenshots, and code to carry on your data analysis without any hurdle. If you are a data analyst, business or information technology professional, student, educator, researcher, or anyone else who wants to learn to analyze the data effectively then this book is for you. No prior experience with R is necessary. Knowledge of other programming languages, software packages, or statistics may be helpful, but is not required.
Based on their extensive experience with teaching R and statistics to applied scientists, the authors provide a beginner's guide to R. To avoid the difficulty of teaching R and statistics at the same time, statistical methods are kept to a minimum.

Statistical analysis is common in the social sciences, and among the more popular programs is R. This book provides a foundation for undergraduate and graduate students in the social sciences on how to use R to manage, visualize, and analyze data. The focus is on how to address substantive questions with data analysis and replicate published findings. Using R for Data Analysis in Social Sciences adopts a minimalist approach and covers only the most important functions and skills in R to conduct reproducible research. It emphasizes the practical needs of students using R by showing how to import, inspect, and manage data, understand the logic of statistical inference, visualize data and findings via histograms, boxplots, scatterplots, and diagnostic plots, and analyze data using one-sample t-test, difference-of-means test, covariance, correlation, ordinary least squares (OLS) regression, and model assumption diagnostics. It also demonstrates how to replicate the findings in published journal articles and diagnose model assumption violations. Because the book integrates R programming, the logic and steps of statistical inference, and the process of empirical social scientific research in a highly accessible and structured fashion, it is appropriate for any introductory course on R, data analysis, and empirical social-scientific research.
