Welcome to the Companion Website

This site is intended to enhance your use of Using R with Multivariate Statistics, by Randall E. Schumacker. Please note that all the materials on this site are especially geared toward maximizing your understanding of the material. 

Using R with Multivariate Statistics is a quick guide to using R, free-access software available for Windows and Mac operating systems that allows users to customize statistical analysis. Designed to serve as a companion to a more comprehensive text on multivariate statistics, this book helps students and researchers in the social and behavioral sciences get up to speed with using R. It provides data analysis examples, R code, computer output, and explanation of results for every multivariate statistical application included. In addition, R code for some of the data set examples used in more comprehensive texts is included, so students can run examples in R and compare results to those obtained using SAS, SPSS, or STATA. A unique feature of the book is the photographs and biographies of famous persons in the field of multivariate statistics.


We gratefully acknowledge Randall E. Schumacker for writing an excellent text and creating the materials on this site.
