One quantitative variable; one categorical variable; two quantitative variables; two categorical variables; quantitative response, categorical predictor; categorical response, quantitative predictor; and survival time outcomes.
• ### R Textbook Examples: Applied Survival Analysis, by Hosmer and Lemeshow

This site shows the code you would use to replicate the examples in Applied Survival Analysis, by Hosmer and Lemeshow. It has code in Stata, R, and SAS.
• ### R Textbook Examples Applied Longitudinal Data Analysis: Modeling Change and Event Occurrence

This site has the data and shows the code you would use to replicate the examples in Applied Longitudinal Data Analysis: Modeling Change and Event Occurrence, by Judith D. Singer and John B. Willett. It has code in SAS, R, Stata, SPSS, HLM, MLwiN, and Mplus.
• ### Try R

This site is an interactive, online tutorial for R. It asks the user to type in commands at an R prompt, which are then evaluated. Typing the right thing allows the user to continue on, typing the wrong thing yields an error. The user cannot skip the easier lessons. Lessons are: Using R; Vectors; Matrices; Summary Statistics; Factors; Data Frames; Real-World Data; and Whatâ€™s Next.

• ### Data Collection: Are Female Hurricanes Deadlier than Male Hurricanes?

This complete lesson plan, which includes assessments, is based upon a data set partially discussed in the article "Female Hurricanes are Deadlier than Male Hurricanes." The data set contains archival data on actual fatalities caused by hurricanes in the United States between 1950 and 2012. Students analyze and explore this hurricane data in order to formulate a question, design and implement a plan to collect data, analyze the data by measures and graphs, and interpret the results in the context of the original question.
• ### Quote: Moroney on Statistical Analysis

• ### Song: Scientific Jam

This is a song suitable for middle school level statistics in reinforcing key elements of the scientific method. College-level use might include playing before a lecture to lighten the mood while setting up. The song's lyrics and music were composed by Jeff Hall audio file is a performance by the scientific jam band (see www.scientificjam.com/scijam2.htm)
• ### Quote: Bohm on The Laws of Chance

Indeed, the laws of chance are just as necessary as the causal laws themselves. is a quote of quantum physicist David J. Bohm (1917- 1992). The quote appears on page 23 of his 1957 book "Causality and Chance in Modern Physics". The quote also appears in "Statistically Speaking: A dictionary of quotations" compiled by Carl Gaither and Alma Cavazos-Gaither.
