There are novel techniques available in R that are not found in the ANALYZE drop down menus of SPSS, Stata, and Statistica.

The R Revolution: Is it for You?

By Dave Collingridge

When I was first introduced to the R statistics program a few years ago, I was reluctant to get into the R scene. I was already proficient with my point-and-click SPSS software. I saw little reason to learn R. But my R-user colleagues encouraged me to give it a try. They raved about R’s versatility, graphics, and cost—it’s free!

I was curious. What did R have to offer that SPSS did not have to offer? As more and more people…

I repeatedly asked professors, “Can you tell me how to validate the questions in my survey?” The response was usually a polite, “I can’t, but have you tried talking to doctor so and so, he might be able to help.” Doctor so and so couldn’t help either. In fact, no one seemed able to help.…

Hi John,

I'm interested in customising my ning site in a similar way to Methodspace. In particular I'd like to add a customised header and add a resources tab and change the label 'friends' to something more appropriate to my site. Just wondered if you might be happy to advise me?
Best wishes - Geraldine
