Why should you learn R?

Here are the reasons to learn R:

  • The big data and data science industry is rapidly growing, so is the need for data scientists and statisticians. By 2018, United States could face a shortage of 140,000 to 190,000 people with deep analytics skills and 1.5 million managers and analyst who would know the use of big data to make information based decision making (Source: McKinsey Global Institute).
  • R is increasingly becoming the required choice of tool in most of these jobs due to its advantages such as being open source, having external support of more than 5000 packages and gets easily integrated with big data technologies like Hadoop, MapReduce.
  • A flexible statistical analysis toolkit. All of the standard data analysis tools are built right into the R language: from accessing data in various formats, to data manipulation, to traditional and modern statistical models.
