A friendly, straightforward guide that does not assume knowledge of programming, this book helps new R users hit the ground running. Eric L. Einspruch provides an overview of the software and shows how to download and install R, RStudio, and R packages. Featuring example code, screenshots, tips, learning exercises, and worked-through examples of statistical techniques, the book demonstrates the capabilities and nuances of these powerful free statistical analysis and data visualization tools. Fundamental aspects of data wrangling, analysis, visualization, and reporting are introduced, using both Base R and Tidyverse approaches. Einspruch emphasizes processes that support research reproducibility, such as use of comments to document R code and use of R Markdown capabilities. The book also helps readers navigate the vast array of R resources available to further develop their skills.
