Book Description
Praise for the First Edition
"The main strength of this book is that it provides a unified framework of graphical tools for data analysis, especially for univariate and lowdimensional multivariate data. In addition, it is clearly written in plain language and the inclusion of R code is particularly useful to assist readers’ understanding of the graphical techniques discussed in the book. … It not only summarises graphical techniques, but it also serves as a practical reference for researchers and graduate students with an interest in data display." Han Lin Shang, Journal of Applied Statistics
Graphics for Statistics and Data Analysis with R, Second Edition, presents the basic principles of graphical design and applies these principles to engaging examples using the graphics and lattice packages in R. It offers a wide array of modern graphical displays for data visualization and representation. Added in the second edition are coverage of the ggplot2 graphics package, material on human visualization and color rendering in R, on screen, and in print.
Features
 Emphasizes the fundamentals of statistical graphics and best practice guidelines for producing and choosing among graphical displays in R
 Presents technical details on topics such as: the estimation of quantiles, nonparametric and parametric density estimation; diagnostic plots for the simple linear regression model; polynomial regression, splines, and locally weighted polynomial regression for producing a smooth curve; Trellis graphics for multivariate data
 Provides downloadable R code and data for figures at www.graphicsforstatistics.com

Reviews
"A leading expert wrote the book. The book is an exposition of statistical methodology that focuses on ideas and concepts and makes extensive use of graphical presentation, but readers should have some prior experience of statistical methodology. The chapters also contain many exercises with solutions and hints presented in the Appendix. The R codes are available for download on the website. The book presents data and Programmes to replicate the models developed, offers new methods that are ready to use, and explores graphical statistics in its entirety from the fundamentals of modern methods. The book is also a complete reference manual and should be considered a musthave companion for the interested advanced audience."
~International Society for Clinical Biostatistics
". . . this is a book I can recommend for consideration in a course or as a course supplement. It is generally clear and wellwritten, and the statistical aspects of some of these methods are explained in sufficient detail to put these in context."
