R news To stay on top of R in the news, we’re sharing some stories related to R published last week.

Interactive Data Visualization Using the Shiny App!(Saurav Kaushik)

This is one of the best tutorials on Shiny that I have seen, and anything that says interactive next to data visualization really should get the top story immediatly!

The Newest Economic Dataset is Announced. (Meredith Somers)

In Obama’s continued quest for increased transparency, the latest update is this Trans-Atlantic Economic Dataset. Now I am wondering who is first to compare Population to GDP… Maybe with the help of the new ggplot2 2.2.0 update?

A Kaggle Dataset on Stackoverflow Questions about R. (David Robinson)

Okay this is pretty damn cool! Package developers can learn so much from an aggregated question dataset like this, and we can learn which of the ownerID’s really has the worst post score.

Fresh Update in the Weekly Debate Between R and Python. (Kaushik Pal)

I personally really appreciate the harmonic ending to this version of the classic debate!

Bayesian Hierarchical Modeling in R. (David Robinson)

Okay David, a fresh new Stackoverflow dataset and this super interesting tutorial on Bayesian modeling. I must be late to the party here but then again maybe I should correct for my own historical distribution…

A New Book from SAGE on Practical Propensity Applications in R. (Walter Leite)

The real question, how high is your propensity score to read this book? Also if you want us to make some exercise sets on this topic tell me in the comments.

Alright that was it for this week, we will keep uploading sets this week and come back with another update as scheduled. To stay on top of the news during the week, visit our R News section.
