## by Zach Bogart, Joyce Robbins

This resource is a collaborative collection of resources designed to help students succeed in GR5702 Exploratory Data Analysis and Visualization, a course offered at Columbia University. While the course lectures and textbook focus on theoretical issues, this resource, in contrast, provides coding tips and examples to assist students as they create their own analyses and visualizations. It is our hope that students will contribute to edav.info and it will grow with the course. Read more →

# STAT160 R/RStudio Companion

Companion document to Introduction to Statistical Investigations using R/RStudio. […] This companion is for use in STAT160 (Introduction to Data Science). The textbook for the course is Introduction to Statistical Investigations (Tintle et. al). Through in-class and home work assignments, students will learn to use R and RStudio. In this companion, we will review the commands and functions students will need to perform statistical analysis and generate statistical … Read more →

# Introduction to Econometrics with R

## by Christoph Hanck, Martin Arnold, Alexander Gerber and Martin Schmelzer

Beginners with little background in statistics and econometrics often have a hard time understanding the benefits of having programming skills for learning and applying Econometrics. ‘Introduction to Econometrics with R’ is an interactive companion to the well-received textbook ‘Introduction to Econometrics’ by James H. Stock and Mark W. Watson (2015). It gives a gentle introduction to the essentials of R programming and guides students in implementing the empirical applications presented throughout the textbook using the newly aquired skills. This is supported by interactive programming exercises generated with DataCamp Light and integration of interactive visualizations of central concepts which are based on the flexible JavaScript library D3.js.

# Statistical Rethinking with brms, ggplot2, and the tidyverse

## by A Solomon Kurz

This project is an attempt to re-express the code in McElreath’s textbook. His models are re-fit in brms, plots are redone with ggplot2, and the general data wrangling code predominantly follows the tidyverse style. […] I love McElreath’s Statistical Rethinking text. It’s the entry-level textbook for applied researchers I spent a couple years looking for. McElreath’s freely-available lectures on the book are really great, too. However, I’ve come to prefer using Bürkner’s brms package when doing Bayeisn regression in R. It’s just spectacular. I also prefer plotting with Wickham’s ggplot2, … Read more →

# An Introduction to Statistical and Data Sciences via R

## by Chester Ismay and Albert Y. Kim

An open-source and fully-reproducible electronic textbook bridging the gap between traditional introductory statistics and data science courses. […] Help!

Start with our Introduction for Students. This is version 0.4.0 of ModernDive published on July 21, 2018. For previous versions of ModernDive, see Section 1.5. This book assumes no prerequisites: no algebra, no calculus, and no prior programming/coding … Read more →

# Broadening Your Statistical Horizons

## by J. Legler and P. Roback

Test. […] Broadening Your Statistical Horizons (BYSH): Generalized Linear Models and Multilevel Models is intended to be accessible to undergraduate students who have successfully completed a regression course through, for example, a textbook like Stat2. We started teaching this course at St. Olaf in 2003 so students would be able to deal with the non-normal, correlated world we live in. It has been offered at St. Olaf every year since; in fact, it is required for all statistics concentrators. Even though there is no mathematical prerequisite, we still introduce fairly sophisticated topics … Read more →

# R bookdownplus Textbook

## by Peng Zhao

A tutorial to R bookdownplus, an extension of R bookdown package. This books shows helps you write academic journal articles, guitar books, chemical equations, mails, calendars, and diaries, on the basis of R bookdown. […] A book titled R bookdownplus Textbook is surely talking about ‘bookdownplus’ (Zhao 2017b), but let’s start with ‘bookdown’ (Xie 2016). ‘bookdown’ is a software package for writing books or documents based on R language (R Core Team 2016) and Markdown syntax. It is something like Microsoft Word, but more elegant, more powerful, and … Read more →

# Probability and Statistics

## by Rob Carroll

These are the lecture notes for POS 5737, the introductory probability and statistics class in the graduate program in political science at Florida State University. […] These are the notes for POS 5737, taught in the Department of Political Science at Florida State University. They freely borrow from several well-known textbooks, including those by Wackerly, Mendenhall, and Scheaffer (2008), DeGroot and Schervish (2012), and Casella and Berger (2002). They also borrow from my own notes as a graduate student when I was taught by Kevin Clarke. Kevin was kind enough to provide his own old … Read more →

# Forecasting: Principles and Practice

## by Rob J Hyndman and George Athanasopoulos

2nd edition […] Welcome to our online textbook on forecasting. This textbook is intended to provide a comprehensive introduction to forecasting methods and to present enough information about each method for readers to be able to use them sensibly. We don’t attempt to give a thorough discussion of the theoretical details behind each method, although the references at the end of each chapter will fill in many of those details. The book is written for three audiences: (1) people finding themselves doing forecasting in business when they may not have had any formal training in the area; … Read more →

# Odds & Ends

## by Jonathan Weisberg

A textbook introducing philosophy students to probability, decision theory, and the philosophical foundations of statistics […] This textbook is for introductory philosophy courses on probability and inductive logic. It is based on a typical such course I teach at the University of Toronto, where we offer “Probability & Inductive Logic” in the second year, alongside the usual deductive logic intro.(\,) The book assumes no deductive logic. The early chapters introduce the little that’s used. In fact almost no formal background is presumed, only very simple high school algebra. Several well … Read more →
