- Qualitative Comparative Analysis with R by Alrik Thiem; Adrian DuaISBN: 9781461445838Publication Date: 2012-08-30Social science theory often builds on sets and their relations. Correlation-based methods of scientific enquiry, however, use linear algebra and are unsuited to analyzing set relations. The development of Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) by Charles Ragin has given social scientists a formal tool for identifying set-theoretic connections based on Boolean algebra. As a result, interest in this method has markedly risen among social scientists in recent years. This book offers the first complete introduction on how to perform QCA in the R software environment for statistical computing and graphics with the QCA package.
- R Cookbook by Paul TeetorISBN: 9780596809157Publication Date: 2011-03-22With more than 200 practical recipes, this book helps you perform data analysis with R quickly and efficiently. The R language provides everything you need to do statistical work, but its structure can be difficult to master.
- R in a Nutshell by Joseph AdlerISBN: 144931208XPublication Date: 2012-10-16If youre considering R for statistical computing and data visualization, this book provides a quick and practical guide to just about everything you can do with the open source R language and software environment. You'll learn how to write R functions and use R packages to help you prepare, visualize, and analyze data.
