A dubious statistics

Following a link on R-bloggers, I ended up on this page (with a completely useless graph that only contained the pieces of information 5% in 1900 and 55% in 2000).

The information below will be periodically updated at the folowing permanent link: http://www.backsidesmack.com/r-resources/ Searching for information on R sucks. Not only is the language name a letter of the alphabet (an ignominy it shares with C and some less well known languages), there is Pearson’s r and the coefficient of determination, R squared! if you…

R-ecap [-16]

This morning, I noticed that none of my R related posts had appeared on R-bloggers for the past fortnight… After investigating, this was caused by…cut-and-paste! Indeed, when advertising about the special issue of TOMACS Arnaud Doucet and I edit about Monte Carlo methods in Statistics, I copied the main parts from the pdf announcement, straight

R-bloggers for other languages – wanna join?

Hello everyone. Recently I’ve been toying with the idea of extending R-bloggers to other languages then English.  After running some checks, I believe it is possible to do (under a sub website inside R-bloggers.com), where people would be able to follow R content on a “language category” of their choosing.
