This modern presentation of statistical equipment gains vast use of graphical monitors for exploring facts and for exhibiting the research. The authors reveal tips on how to research data—showing code, snap shots, and accompanying desktop listings—for all of the equipment they hide. They emphasize the way to build and interpret graphs, talk about ideas of graphical layout, and express how accompanying conventional tabular effects are used to substantiate the visible impressions derived without delay from the graphs.

Rda is standard. frames for storing and handling tabular data in R. frame is a list of vectors of a common length n, the number of rows of the table. Each of those vectors represents the measurements of one variable and we have seen that we can access such a variable by its name, for example the names of the companies R> companies <- Forbes2000[,"name"] Of course, the companies vector is of class character and of length 2000. A subset of the elements of the vector companies can be extracted using the [] subset operator.

This numeric vector will be passed on to the quantile function for computing the sample quartiles. The required difference between the 3rd and 1st quartile can then be computed using diff. rm' is FALSE In order to make our little function more flexible it would be helpful to add all arguments of quantile to the argument list of iqr. The copy-andpaste approach that first comes to mind is likely to lead to inconsistencies and errors, for example when the argument list of quantile changes. max(iqr_profits)] [1] "Drugs & biotechnology" We observe less variable profits in tourism enterprises compared with profits in the pharmaceutical industry.

A chain of R commands to be executed. In addition, we need a set of values and a variable that iterates over this set. rm = TRUE) iqr_profits2[levels(bcat) == cat] <- this_iqr } Compared to the usage of tapply, the above code is rather complicated. At first, we have to set up a vector for storing the results and assign the appropriate names to it. Next, inside the body of the for loop, the iqr function has to be called on the appropriate subset of all companies of the current business category cat.
