Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The book contains a wealth of modern material that should be covered in more depth in statistics courses: for example, missing data, outlier detection, missing imputation, correlation coefficient matrices, principles of model selection, text mining, and decision trees…The book has many hot and recent packages; many are written or have theory based on results developed since 2010."--MAA.org, April 23, 2014 "Zhao and Cen present 15 real-world applications of data mining with the open-source statistics software R. Each application covers the business background, and problems, data extraction and exploitation, data preprocessing, modeling, model evaluation, findings, and model deployment. They involve a diverse set of challenging problems in terms of data size, data type, data mining goals, and the methodologies and tools to carry out the analysis."--ProtoView.com, February 2014
