Thank you for putting together the wonderful tutorials. I work with the Red Cross on recovery efforts for areas affected by Typhoon Haiyan. We use R for all of our data processing and analysis and your videos have been instrumental in helping teach R to staff and volunteers with limited programming background. Thanks again for all of your hard work and diligence.

Marin you are the best trainer I’ve ever come across. Thanks so much for the training videos on R language… The way you deliver your speech and explain things its awesome….I recently got passionate about data analysis so that’s why I want to learn the R language. Because I love to work as a data analyst or a data scientist somewhere in future. And now everyday I’m follow your videos on R… thanks

Mohamed Mohamed says:

Thanks Marin

+MarinStatsLectures When you were leaning R, did you have to memorize or write down code at all?  My background is microbiology (trying to get into big data) and I am used to memorizing everything.  Make a list of R code lines or memorize?

Jyotsna Roop says:

hello Sir, your tutorials are very nice.I am working on various regression techniques. SO if you are so desired, can you please kindly help me in presenting videos related to implementation of the following regression techniques?
1)Ordinary Least Squares regression
2)OLS regression with log transformation
3)OLS regression with BOX COX(BC) transformation
4)Robust regression
5)Ridge regression
6)Least median squares regression.

Sir, I have implemented Ordinary least Squares regression on few data sets related to my Project work namely  “Data Mining Techniques for software Effort Estimation: A comparative Study”.  But for these other regression techniques, I am unable to find any reliable videos.  So if you can help me out, I will be very grateful to you.  Thank you.  student 🙂
Sir, I am also sharing the script for “Ordinary Least Squares regression” technique implementation if possible. Thank you.
