R for Stats : Updated

Software

Train in R

Predictive Analytics- The Book

Here is the new website for statistical analysis using the free analytical software called R (which is enabled for cloud computing as well : see here http://bit.ly/OhriCloud

or http://rgrossman.com/2009/05/17/running-r-on-amazons-ec2/

for the R tutorial on running it on Amazon’s EC2 pay per demand RAM.

It is called R 4 stats or simply http://www.r4stats.com/

Hosted on Google’s Updated Google Sites Platform- it offers a preview to Bob’s earlier run away hit R for SAS and SPSS users updation as well as his upcoming work R for Stata Users.

In Bob’s words himself -

I have substantially expanded the table that compares SAS and SPSS
add-on modules to somewhat equivalent R packages. This new version is
at:
http://r4stats.com/add-on-modules
and I would very much appreciate any feedback you might have on it.

The site http://r4stats.com is the replacement to
http://RforSASandSPSSusers.com and includes the support files for both
“R for SAS and SPSS Users” and the new “R for Stata Users”, due out in
March from Springer.

    Hi Ajay,

    This product comparison table is a challenge to keep up to date. Since I put it online, I have had readers suggest about five changes per day. Google’s web site editing tools make these changes quick and easy to implement.

    Cheers,
    Bob
