R is a popular open source software that provides everything students and researchers need to conduct data analysis. It is a great tool for data handling, graphical studies, econometrics, statistics, and other ways of analysing data.
With R you will be able to manage and analyse a wide range of data structures, from a simple data set to complex and multiple structures. R allows the user to generate information from data by executing very simple commands at an early stage of the learning curve. Once the basics have been understood, you can even create your our functions and routines!
