About R

Today, R is a very popular program for statistical analysis with over two million active users. One reason for this is that program development is constantly advancing through user-created packages that are both easy to install and use.

Since R is open-source software, you can also use code that others have developed in your own projects without paying license fees. The fact that R is available at no cost, as free software, has likely also been a driving factor behind its increasing popularity.
