The 'HistData' package provides a collection of small data sets that are interesting and important in the history of statistics and data visualization. The goal of the package is to make these available, both for instructional use and for historical research. Some of these present interesting challenges for graphics or analysis in R.

Functions for computing and visualizing generalized canonical discriminant analyses and canonical correlation analysis for a multivariate linear model. Traditional canonical discriminant analysis is restricted to a one-way 'MANOVA' design and is equivalent to canonical correlation analysis between a set of quantitative response variables and a set of dummy variables coded from the factor variable. The 'candisc' package generalizes this to higher-way 'MANOVA' designs for all factors in a multivariate linear model, computing canonical scores and vectors for each term. The graphic functions provide low-rank (1D, 2D, 3D) visualizations of terms in an 'mlm' via the 'plot.candisc' and 'heplot.candisc' methods. Related plots are now provided for canonical correlation analysis when all predictors are quantitative.

Provides HE plot and other functions for visualizing hypothesis tests in multivariate linear models. HE plots represent sums-of-squares-and- products matrices for linear hypotheses and for error using ellipses (in two dimensions) and ellipsoids (in three dimensions). The related 'candisc' package provides visualizations in a reduced-rank canonical discriminant space when there are more than a few response variables.

A collection of matrix functions for teaching and learning matrix linear algebra as used in multivariate statistical methods. These functions are mainly for tutorial purposes in learning matrix algebra ideas using R. In some cases, functions are provided for concepts available elsewhere in R, but where the function call or name is not obvious. In other cases, functions are provided to show or demonstrate an algorithm. In addition, a collection of functions are provided for drawing vector diagrams in 2D and 3D.

Provides additional data sets, methods and documentation to complement the 'vcd' package for Visualizing Categorical Data and the 'gnm' package for Generalized Nonlinear Models. In particular, 'vcdExtra' extends mosaic, assoc and sieve plots from 'vcd' to handle 'glm()' and 'gnm()' models and adds a 3D version in 'mosaic3d'. Additionally, methods are provided for comparing and visualizing lists of 'glm' and 'loglm' objects. This package is now a support package for the book, "Discrete Data Analysis with R" by Michael Friendly and David Meyer.

This package comprises maps of France in 1830, multivariate data from A.-M. Guerry and others, and statistical and graphic methods related to Guerry's "Moral Statistics of France". The goal is to facilitate the exploration and development of statistical and graphic methods for multivariate data in a geo-spatial context of historical interest.

Computes regression deletion diagnostics for multivariate linear models and provides some associated diagnostic plots. The diagnostic measures include hat-values (leverages), generalized Cook's distance, and generalized squared 'studentized' residuals. Several types of plots to detect influential observations are provided.

The genridge package introduces generalizations of the standard univariate ridge trace plot used in ridge regression and related methods. These graphical methods show both bias (actually, shrinkage) and precision, by plotting the covariance ellipsoids of the estimated coefficients, rather than just the estimates themselves. 2D and 3D plotting methods are provided, both in the space of the predictor variables and in the transformed space of the PCA/SVD of the predictors.

Carries out analyses of two-way tables with one observation per cell, together with graphical displays for an additive fit and a diagnostic plot for removable 'non-additivity' via a power transformation of the response. It implements Tukey's Exploratory Data Analysis methods, including a 1-degree-of-freedom test for row*column 'non-additivity', linear in the row and column effects.

Collects several classical word pools used most often to provide lists of words in psychological studies of learning and memory. It provides a simple function, 'pickList' for selecting random samples of words within given ranges.

Generates a random quotation from a data base of quotes on topics in statistics, data visualization and science.

Provides a general-purpose tool for dynamic report generation in R using Literate Programming techniques.

Functions to Accompany J. Fox and S. Weisberg, An R Companion to Applied Regression, Third Edition, Sage, in press.

Set of tools for manipulating geographic data. It includes binary access to 'GSHHG' shoreline files. The package also provides interface wrappers for exchanging spatial objects with packages such as 'PBSmapping', 'spatstat', 'maps', 'RArcInfo', and others.

Graphical and tabular effect displays, e.g., of interactions, for various statistical models with linear predictors.

A collection of miscellaneous basic statistic functions and convenience wrappers for efficiently describing data. The author's intention was to create a toolbox, which facilitates the (notoriously time consuming) first descriptive tasks in data analysis, consisting of calculating descriptive statistics, drawing graphical summaries and reporting the results. The package contains furthermore functions to produce documents using MS Word (or PowerPoint) and functions to import data from Excel. Many of the included functions can be found scattered in other packages and other sources written partly by Titans of R. The reason for collecting them here, was primarily to have them consolidated in ONE instead of dozens of packages (which themselves might depend on other packages which are not needed at all), and to provide a common and consistent interface as far as function and arguments naming, NA handling, recycling rules etc. are concerned. Google style guides were used as naming rules (in absence of convincing alternatives). The 'camel style' was consequently applied to functions borrowed from contributed R packages as well.

Visualization techniques, data sets, summary and inference procedures aimed particularly at categorical data. Special emphasis is given to highly extensible grid graphics. The package was package was originally inspired by the book "Visualizing Categorical Data" by Michael Friendly and is now the main support package for a new book, "Discrete Data Analysis with R" by Michael Friendly and David Meyer (2015).

Functions for fitting general linear structural equation models (with observed and latent variables) using the RAM approach, and for fitting structural equations in observed-variable models by two-stage least squares.

Ordination methods, diversity analysis and other functions for community and vegetation ecologists.

Provides the tables from the 'Sean Lahman Baseball Database' as a set of R data.frames. It uses the data on pitching, hitting and fielding performance and other tables from 1871 through 2015, as recorded in the 2016 version of the database.

R is great for installing software. Through the 'installr' package you can automate the updating of R (on Windows, using updateR()) and install new software. Software installation is initiated through a GUI (just run installr()), or through functions such as: install.Rtools(), install.pandoc(), install.git(), and many more. The updateR() command performs the following: finding the latest R version, downloading it, running the installer, deleting the installation file, copy and updating old packages to the new R installation.

Functions to fit log-multiplicative models using 'gnm', with support for convenient printing, plots, and jackknife/bootstrap standard errors. For complex survey data, models can be fitted from design objects from the 'survey' package. Currently supported models include UNIDIFF (Erikson & Goldthorpe), a.k.a. log-multiplicative layer effect model (Xie), and several association models: Goodman's row-column association models of the RC(M) and RC(M)-L families with one or several dimensions; two skew-symmetric association models proposed by Yamaguchi and by van der Heijden & Mooijaart. Functions allow computing the intrinsic association coefficient (and therefore the Altham index), including via the Bayes shrinkage estimator proposed by Zhou; and the RAS/IPF/Deming-Stephan algorithm.
