Outliers are data points with values that are surprisingly large or small given all data points considered jointly. There are a few outliers representing very short reaction times, and many more outliers representing very long reaction times. 2. 3. Ordered values, quartiles, and deciles for logarithmically transformed reaction times in a visual lexical decision experiment. 3 was produced simply with: > plot(sort(lexdec$RT), ylab = "log RT") When plot() is supplied with only one vector of data, it assumes that this vector represents Y -values and generates a vector of X -values numbered from 1 to the number of elements in the input vector.

The length of a vector is provided by the function length(). Recalculate the mean year of publication by means of the functions sum() and length(). 7. frame(Author = c("Cela","Mendoza","VargasLLosa"), + Favorite = c("Stravinsky", "Bach", "Villa-Lobos")) > composer Author Favorite 1 Cela Stravinsky 2 Mendoza Bach 3 VargasLLosa Villa-Lobos Add the information in this new data frame to meta with merge(). 1 Random variables Chapter 1 introduced the data frame as the data structure for storing vectors of numbers as well as factors.

The second step consisted in adding the words to the plot with text(). Like plot(), it requires input vectors for the X and Y coordinates. Its third argument should be a vector with the strings that are to be placed in the plot. character() before handing it over to text(). 7) Thus far, we have considered scatterplots involving two variables only. Many data sets have more than two variables, however, and although we might consider inspecting all possible pairwise combinations with a series of scatterplots, it is often more convenient and insightful to make a single multipanel figure that shows all pairwise scatterplots simultaneously.
