Using modern statistical software systems requires training both in the software itself and in the underlying statistical methods. Concentrating on the freely available R system, this volume demonstrates recently implemented approaches and methods in statistical analysis. The authors introduce elementary concepts in statistics through examples of real-world data analysis drawn from their experience as teachers and as consultants. R code and data sets for all examples are available on the Internet. This emphasis on practical methodology combined with a tutorial approach makes the book accessible to anyone with a knowledge of undergraduate-level statistics. The methods demonstrated are suitable for use in a wide variety of disciplines, from social sciences to medicine, engineering and science.
