With R 3.4 landing, it’s time to revisit
Multivariate Statistics: Old School -
or the second ever R package I ever created. The origins of this package
are related to taking, circa 2013, Professor Emeritus John Marden excellent
STAT 571: Multivariate Analysis course at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
(UIUC) and not being able to instanteously load in a few of the datasets
– mainly the famed “Spam” data set – from the
dput data object dump on
a 2009 MBP.
Having said this,
msos is the associated R package for Professor Emeritus
John Marden’s popular book of the same name.
The package provides multivariate analysis methods and multivariate-oriented
data sets. Since its inception, it has been used in STAT 571: Multivariate Analysis
and STAT 430: Introduction to Multivariate Analysis at UIUC.
