Summary
"Do you want to use R to tell stories? This book was written for you--whether you already know some R or have never coded before. Most R texts focus only on programming or statistical theory. Practical R for Mass Communication and Journalism gives you ideas, tools, and techniques for incorporating data and visualizations into your narratives. You'll see step by step how to: Analyze airport flight delays, restaurant inspections, and election results -- Map bank locations, median incomes, and new voting districts -- Compare campaign contributions to final election results -- Extract data from PDFs -- Whip messy data into shape for analysis -- Scrape data from a website -- Create graphics ranging from simple, static charts to interactive visualizations for the Web. If you work or plan to work in a newsroom, government office, non-profit policy organization, or PR office, Practical R for Mass Communication and Journalism will help you use R in your world." -- Back cover
