What is R?

R is a programming language and also an open-source software environment for statistical computing and graphics. R can be used for linear and nonlinear modeling, classical statistical tests, and time-series analysis, among other statistical and graphical techniques. R can also be used to create publication-quality plots and graphs.

R is installed on the designated WHSC Library computers, but it is free, open-source software that can be downloaded and installed on your personal device.
