Abstract

There are compelling reasons to use R. Enthusiastic users, programmers, and contributors support R and its development. A dedicated core team of R experts maintains the language. R is accurate, produces excellent graphics, has a variety of built-in functions, and is both a functional language and an object-oriented one. There are (literally) thousands of contributed packages available to R users for specialized data analyses.
