Interest in the open source statistical package R has grown over the last few years as researchers discover its powerful graphic capabilities, a suite of packages that extend its functionality, and its data import capabilities. While several courses use R to teach introductory statistics, most researchers arrive at R with some statistical experience. The following selected resources represent a growing number of books and websites designed to help orient users to the capabilities of R.
This website tries to provide a quick overview of basic data management and statistical capabilities of R for current SAS, SPSS, Stata, and Systat users. The stress is on providing a brief overview of R commands for common data analysis needs.
