## Description

**Solution Manual for Statistics With R-Solving Problems Using Real-World Data By Harris**

**Solution Manual for Statistics With R-Solving Problems Using Real-World Data By Jenine K. Harris, ISBN: 9781506388151**

“**Statistics with R **is easily the most accessible and almost fun introduction to statistics and R that I have read. Even the most hesitant student is likely to embrace the material with this text.”

—David A.M. Peterson, *Department of Political Science, Iowa State University*

Drawing on examples from across the social and behavioral sciences, **Statistics with R: Solving Problems Using Real-World Data** introduces foundational statistics concepts with beginner-friendly R programming in an exploration of the world’s tricky problems faced by the “R Team” characters. Inspired by the programming group “R Ladies,” the R Team works together to master the skills of statistical analysis and data visualization to untangle real-world, messy data using R. The storylines draw students into investigating contemporary issues such as marijuana legalization, voter registration, and the opioid epidemic, and lead them step-by-step through full-color illustrations of R statistics and interactive exercises.
