A list of awesome statistics resources in 2014

December 19, 2014

Johns Hopkins Biostatistics Professor (and presenter of Data Analysis at Coursera) Jeff Leek has published his list of awesome things other people did in 2014. It's well worth following the links in his 38 entries, where you'll find a wealth of useful resources in teaching, statistics, data science, and data visualization.

Many of the entries are related to R, including shout-outs to: the data wrangling, exploration, and analysis with R class at UBC; this paper on R Markdown and reproducible analysis; Hadley Wickham's R Packages; Hilary Parker's guide to writing R packages from scratch; the broom package (for tidying up statistical output in R); Karl Broman's hipsteR tutorial; Rocker (Docker containers for R); and Packrat and R markdown v2 from RStudio. I was also chuffed to see that this blog got a mention, too:

Another huge reason for the movement with R has been the outreach and development efforts of the Revolution Analytics folks. The Revolutions blog has been a must read this year.

Thanks, Jeff! Check out Jeff's complete list of awesome things at SimplyStatistics by following the link below.
