This contemporary presentation of statistical methods features extensive use of graphical displays for exploring data and for displaying the analysis.
The authors demonstrate how to analyze data-showing code, graphics, and accompanying tabular listings-for all the methods they cover.
Complete R scripts for all examples and figures are provided for readers to use as models for their own analyses. This book can serve as a standalone text for statistics majors at the master's level and for other quantitatively oriented disciplines at the doctoral level, and as a reference book for researchers.
