Introduction to the R Statistical System

Richard M Heiberger

 Friday November 30, 2012


R is the lingua franca of data analysis and graphics.  In this short course we will learn the fundamentals of the language and immediately use it for the statistical analysis of data.  We will graph both the data and the results of the analyses.

 We will work with the basic statistical tools (regression, analysis of variance, and contingency tables), and some more specialized tools used in the pharmaceutical industry (nonlinear mixed models, survival analysis, simulations, non-parametric analysis, time and dates functions).  We will also look at the Rcmdr menu system, RExcel integration of R with Excel, and the design of R packages.

Dr. Heiberger is Professor of Statistics at Temple University and an author of several books on statistical computing, including one on using R and Excel.

Registration will be capped at 50. Tickets will be sold first-come first-serve, so register early! Full refunds will be given on request before Wednesday November 21.
