If you’ve used SAS or SPSS and want a jump-start into the basics of the popular R language, next week’s webinar, Introduction to R for SAS and SPSS Users will be of interest to you. While R, SAS and SPSS are all three software systems for data analysis and graphics, the underlying concepts in R are quite different to those in SAS and SPSS.

To get SAS and SPSS users up to speed with the basics of R, Bob Muenchen (University of Tennessee) will give a 60-minute webinar on Wednesday, October 5. It will include:

  • What R is and how it compares to SAS and SPSS
  • An overview of how to install and maintain it
  • How to find R add-on modules comparable to those for SAS and SPSS
  • Which of R’s many user interfaces are most like those of SAS and SPSS
  • How to run R from within SAS and SPSS
  • What a simple R program looks like
  • Live Q&A with Bob Muenchen

Bob is the perfect presenter for this topic: he is the author of R for SAS and SPSS Users (and, with Joseph M. Hilbe, R for Stata Users). He is also the creator of r4stats.com, a popular web site devoted to helping people learn R. Bob also serves on advisory panels for IBM’s SPSS Corporation and SAS Institute.
