8 AN INTRODUCTION TO R A vector is the elementary structure for data handling in R and is a set of simple elements, all being objects of the same class. For example, a simple vector of the numbers one to three can be constructed by one of the following commands R> 1:3 [1] 1 2 3 R> c(1,2,3) [1] 1 2 3 R> seq(from = 1, to = 3, by = 1) [1] 1 2 3 The unique names of all 2000 companies are stored in a character vector R> class(Forbes2000[,"name"]) [1] "character" R> length(Forbes2000[,"name"]) [1] 2000 and the first element of this vector is R> Forbes2000[,"name"][1] [1] "Citigroup" Because the companies are ranked, Citigroup is the world’s largest company according to the Forbes 2000 list.

7 .. Use whatever graphical techniques you think are appropriate to investigate whether there is any ‘pattern’ or structure in the data. Do you observe something suspicious? 1 Introduction Shortly after metric units of length were officially introduced in Australia in the 1970s, each of a group of 44 students was asked to guess, to the nearest metre, the width of the lecture hall in which they were sitting. Another group of 69 students in the same room was asked to guess the width in feet, to the nearest foot.

All information, including the partner’s income, are derived from a questionnaire answered by the responding woman only. Here, we focus on graphical displays for inspecting the relationship of these health and socioeconomic variables of heterosexual women and their partners. 2 Initial Data Analysis According to Chambers et al. (1983), “there is no statistical tool that is as powerful as a well chosen graph”. Certainly, the analysis of most (probably all) data sets should begin with an initial attempt to understand the general characteristics of the data by graphing them in some hopefully useful and informative manner.
