George Akritas Lab on Chapter 1 Chapter 1: Basic Statistical Concepts Outline Introduction to R Simple Random Sampling Basic Statistical Graphics Introduction to R Simple Random Sampling Basic Statistical Graphics Histograms and Stem and Leaf Plots Scatterplots, Scatterplot Matrices and 3D Scatterplots M. George Akritas Lab on Chapter 1 Chapter 1: Basic Statistical Concepts Outline Introduction to R Simple Random Sampling Basic Statistical Graphics I R is a GNU project. The GNU (recursive acronym for ”GNU’s Not Unix”) project, sponsored by the Free Software Foundation, was launched in 1984 to develop a complete Unix-like operating system which is free software. I To find out about R go to http://www.R-project.org/ . See also the NY Times article http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/07/technology/ business-computing/07program.html?pagewanted=all I To download R go to http://cran.r-project.org/ . CRAN is a network of ftp and web servers around the world that store identical, up-to-date, versions of code and documentation for R. Please use the CRAN mirror nearest to you to minimize network load (e.g. the CMU mirror http://lib.stat.cmu.edu/R/CRAN/ . M. George Akritas Lab on Chapter 1 Chapter 1: Basic Statistical Concepts Outline Introduction to R Simple Random Sampling Basic Statistical Graphics Example 1.4.1, p. 10 Example Describe a software-based procedure for obtaining a simple random sample of 12 mixers from a day’s production of 60 mixers. Solution. Number the mixers from 1 to 60. Use ”sample(seq(1, 60), size = 12)” or ”y=sample(seq(1, 60), size = 12); y” NOTES: • ”seq(1,60)” is the same as ”seq(1,60,1)” or 1:60. • Try also ”seq(1,10,2)”. M.

M. George Akritas Lab on Chapter 1 Chapter 1: Basic Statistical Concepts Outline Introduction to R Simple Random Sampling Basic Statistical Graphics Example 1.6.3, p. 22 Example The productivity of each of the N = 10 , 000 employees of a company is rated on a scale from 1 - 5.
