It might be interesting to compare the profits in each of the 27 categories. rm = TRUE) a command that should be read as follows. rm = TRUE. 35 where rev rearranges the vector of median profits sorted from smallest to largest. Of course, we can replace the median function with mean or whatever is appropriate in the call to tapply. In our situation, mean is not a good choice, because the distributions of profits or sales are naturally skewed. Simple graphical tools for the inspection of the empirical distributions are introduced later on and in Chapter 2.

Csv (such a file is part of the HSAUR2 source package in directory HSAUR2/inst/rawdata). csv" should be interpreted as variable names. "). names = 1). csv can be used to read comma separated files. table by default guesses the class of each variable from the specified file. In our case, character variables are stored as factors R> class(csvForbes2000[,"name"]) [1] "factor" which is only suboptimal since the names of the companies are unique. equal(csvForbes2000, Forbes2000) [1] TRUE The argument colClasses expects a character vector of length equal to the number of columns in the file.

Now we might move on to look at how mortality rates are related to the geographic location of a state as represented by the latitude and longitude of the centre of the state. Here the main graphic will be the scatterplot. The simple xy scatterplot has been in use since at least the eighteenth century and has many virtues – indeed according to Tufte (1983): The relational graphic – in its barest form the scatterplot and its variants – is the greatest of all graphical designs. It links at least two variables, encouraging and even imploring the viewer to assess the possible causal relationship between the plotted variables.
