The following projects on DHCommons use R.

The following recipes on Methodi.ca use R.

### RSiena

Data analysis network analysisRSiena is a package for the R language that enables the statistical analysis of network data, including longitudinal network data, longitudinal data of networks and behavior, and cross-sectional network data. It provides the same functionality available in SIENA (Simulation Investigation for Empirical Network Analysis), Windows software which is no longer maintained.

### MALLET package for R

Text mining rThis package allows users to train topic models in MALLET and load results directly into R.

### RStudio

Data analysis Graphical User Interface (GUI), statistics, charts, analysis, DH AnswersRStudio is an integrated development environment (IDE) for R. It is available in both open source and consumer versions, and can run either on your desktop, or through a browser connected to RStudio Server. Features include syntax highlighting, code completion, smart indentation, and an interactive debugger.

### CulturalAnalytics

Data analysis, Visualization images, standard deviation, mean, image entropy, histogramCulturalAnalytics is an R package containing functions for statistical analysis and plotting of image properties, including statistics such as the standard deviation and mean in the RGB and HSV color spaces, image entropy and histograms in greyscale (intensity) and color, and for plotting color clouds and image scatter charts.

### Statistical Lab

Data analysis statistics, analysisStatistical Lab is a graphical user interface designed to make statistical analysis easier to understand. This interactive tool will connect and display data frames, frequency tables, random numbers or matrixes. Statistical Lab uses R to run calculations, conduct analyses and perform multiple simulations and manipulations.

### Rwui

Data analysis, Authoring interactive works web design, statisticsRwui allows you to convert an R script to a web page with an interface where users can run the script(s) even if they don't know R.
