To make this plot, I used R's plot(), points() and lines() commands. If you have been wanting to learn how to plot in R, watch it unfold in this video tutorial:Also, here's the code I used:

The easiest-to-find method for shading under a normal density is to use the polygon() command. That link is to the first hit on Google for "Shading Under a Normal Curve in R." It works (like a charm), but it is not the most intuitive way to let users p...

I recorded a new video tutorial whose original intent was to demonstrate how to write a for loop. As I wanted to make the for loop count for something, I decided that my application would be to write some code that computes the bootstrap approximation ...

Update: I have replaced this video tutorial with a video tutorial on a newer, easier to use IV regression command. Check out that command here.In this video, I show how to use my instrumental variables function in R, ivreg(), along with its companion ...

Here's a tutorial I recorded on producing basic plots in R.I lost the script file I used to create the video to a horrifying black screen of death, but I used the data from the previous post (available here). Hopefully, the video is clear enough that ...

This video shows a couple of things:1. How to test (multiple) linear restrictions in R.2. How to install a package in R. Here is the code I use in the video (with some extra comments).Here is the data set that I use in the video.

Here's a video tutorial where I demonstrate an answer to this question.This video is designed to instill a baseline level of practical knowledge. There is more to how R treats factors in regression models. An interested reader should Google "R contra...

I created another video tutorial on R. This time, I discuss R's lm() command and how to use it for a variety of standard applications.Here is the code that goes with the video:Enjoy!

Here's a video tutorial I put together to go over how to generate a random sample from one of the commonly known parametric distributions in R.Along the way, I also discuss how some of the properties of estimators are reflected in the computations I pe...

Here's an R tutorial where I explain how to read Stata data files into R (even if you don't own the program Stata). I also offer some other basic tips.Of note, you can also write Stata .dta files from R (if your coauthors or journals insist on having ...
