Examples

Assign values

> a=16
> b<-1/3

Print values

Get all variables you filled so far

> ls()

Read values into a vector

> myVector <- c(3,5,7,9)
> myVector

[1] 3 5 7 9

Get 3. element

> myVector[3]

[1] 7

Get type of vector

> myVector[0]

numeric(0)

Get Vector with this size and every value is 0

a <- numeric(10)

Get an overview of the data in a vector

> summary(myVector)

Min. 1st Qu.  Median    Mean 3rd Qu.    Max.
3.0     4.5     6.0     6.0     7.5     9.0

For more than one columns, get summary only for column "Clicks"

> summary(myOtherVector$Clicks)

Add 1 to any element in the vector

> myVector

[1] 3 5 7 9

> myVector<-myVector+1
> myVector

[1]  4  6  8 10

Watch out if vectors have a different size!

> a=c(1,2,3,4)
> b=c(5,6)
> a+b

[1]  6  8  8 10

Calculate

> b=sqrt(16)
> e=exp(1)
> e

[1] 2.718282
> log(e)

[1] 1

Mean

> mean(myVector)

[1] 7
> var(myVector)

[1] 6.666667
> round(myVector, digits=2)

Sum

> sum(myVector)

[1] 28
> sort(question1,decreasing = TRUE)

[1] "Weekly"      "Weekly"      "Sometimes"   "Sometimes"   "Sometimes"   "Sometimes"   "Once a
year" "Never"
> min(question1)

[1] "Never"
> max(question1)

Filter Only smaller 5

> myValues<-c(1,8,2,4,7,1,2,3)
> myValues[myValues<5]

Read Data from CSV file

> myCSVFile <- read.csv(file="/tmp/myFile.csv",head=TRUE,sep=",")

Get help on a command

> help(read.csv)

File commands

> dir()
> getwd()

Columns may have names, get all the names

> names(myCSVFile)

Get values from a column by name (column has name "Clicks")

> myCSVFile$Clicks

Get all column and all row names

> attributes(myCSVFile)

Strings

> s <- "Hello World"

Factors Sometimes columns do not contain numbers but names or labels of a discrete set of possible values. For example any row might belong to group A, B or C so you have a column Group and any row has on of those labels in it. R calls such a value a Factor. If your labels are numbers (e.g. 1,2 or 3) you can tell R that they are Factors.

> myCSVFile$Reviews<-factor(myCSVFile$Reviews)

Data Frames Data Frames can group serveral different variables into one object

myFrame <- data.frame(A=a,B=b)

Logical

> spock=5>2
> spock

[1] TRUE

Matrix

> myMatrix=matrix(c(4,3,2,5,6,7,8,9,0),ncol=3,byrow=TRUE)
> myMatrix

[,1] [,2] [,3]
[1,]    4    3    2
[2,]    5    6    7
[3,]    8    9    0
> colnames(myMatrix) <- c("A","B","C")
> myMatrix

A B C
[1,] 4 3 2
[2,] 5 6 7
[3,] 8 9 0

Tables Get some factors and a table to find out how often the different values appear

> people<-factor(c("Smoker", "NonSmoker", "NonSmoker", "Smoker", "Smoker", "Smoker"))
> myTable<-table(people)
> myTable

people
NonSmoker    Smoker
2         4

A matrix with named columns and rows may also be turned into a table

> myMatrix=matrix(c(4,3,2),ncol=3,byrow=TRUE)
> colnames(myMatrix) <- c("A","B","C")
> rownames(myMatrix) <- c("R1")
> myTable<-as.table(myMatrix)
> myTable

A B C
R1 4 3 2

Two Way Tables

Assume you asked 8 people 2 questions. This is how a table will show you how often a person who replied with a given answer to the first question replied to the second question

> question1<-c("Sometimes","Sometimes","Never","Weekly","Weekly","Sometimes","Sometimes","Once a
year")
> question2<-c("Maybe","Maybe","Yes","Maybe","Maybe","No","Yes","No")
> myTable<-table(question1,question2)
> myTable

question2
question1     Maybe No Yes
Never           0  0   1
Once a year     0  1   0
Sometimes       2  1   1
Weekly          2  0   0

Probability

Plotting

Get linear regression model for y=f(x)

> year <- c(2000 ,   2001  ,  2002  ,  2003 ,   2004)
> rate <- c(9.34 ,   8.50  ,  7.62  ,  6.93  ,  6.60)
> fit <- lm(rate ~ year)
> plot(year,rate)
> abline(fit)
> plot(fit)

Load test data

Filter out the upper triangle

> upper.tri(myCorrelation)
