Do you want to use R to tell stories? This book was written for you - whether you already know some R or have never coded before.

Most R texts focus only on programming or statistical theory. Practical R for Mass Communication and Journalism gives you ideas, tools, and techniques for incorporating data and visualizations into your narratives.

You’ll see step by step how to:

Analyze airport flight delays, restaurant inspections, and election results
Map bank locations, median incomes, and new voting districts
Compare campaign contributions to final election results
Extract data from PDFs
Whip messy data into shape for analysis
Scrape data from a website
Create graphics ranging from simple, static charts to interactive visualizations for the Web

If you work or plan to work in a newsroom, government office, non-profit policy organization, or PR office, Practical R for Mass Communication and Journalism will help you use R in your world.

This book has a companion website with code, links to additional resources, and searchable tables by function and task.

"The book can provide a good starting point into working with R. It covers a lot of perspectives that are expected in newsrooms all over the world, especially working with geospatial data. It also provides a lot of good examples and interesting additional resources. The packages used are also mainly part of the standard corpus of R-packages." -Benedict Witzenberger, Suddeutsche Zeitung
