Carlen Erickson on R Tutorials and Learning Resources

Hello aea365. My name is Carlen Erickson and I am a student learning the statistics program R! I want to share two resources I have found invaluable.

Rad Resource: R is a free statistical software package for conducting analyses of quantitative data. It is a free competitor to SAS or SPSS. R can be downloaded from its website here

Hot Tip: Anthony Damico has posted 93 “twotorials” – two minute, primarily beginner, tutorials on different aspects of using R. Each is a short screencast with audio. You can find them here

Hot Tip: R-Bloggers is a compilation of multiple blogs focusing on using R. It has something for everyone, from the beginner to the expert. They are online here
