Welcome to the website to accompany A Survivor’s Guide to R.

The Survivor’s Guide is a gentle but thorough introduction to the use of the R language for data management, statistical analysis, and data visualization.

This is a place for those who by choice or decree need to learn R and have that uneasy feeling that their lack of a strong background in computer programming or statistics might make the R learning curve a little steeper.

You will find here all of the R scripts and data sets used in the Survivor’s Guide.

The Survivor’s Guide to R: An Introduction for the Uninitiated and the Unnerved is now available from SAGE Press or any of the other usual places.
