About R

R is very popular for data analytics which was created by Ross Ihaka and Robert Gentleman in 1993. Many big companies like Google, Facebook, Airbnb etc uses this language for data analytics. R is good for software developers, statisticians and data miners.

Key Features

  • Interpreted programming language(no compilation required)
  • provides highly extensible graphical techniques.
  • Good community support
  • Free and open-source
  • Handles data very effectively.

Data Types

Data typeDescriptionUsage
NumericTo represent decimal valuesx=1.84
IntegerTo represent integer values, L tells to store the value as integerx=10L

Variables can be assigned using any of the leftward, rightward or equal to operator. You can print the variables using either print or cat functions.

var-name = value
var-name <- value
value -> var-name


1. IF Family:

If, If-else, Nested-Ifs are used when you want to perform a certain set of operations based on conditional expressions.




    #code if condition is true  
} else {  
    #code if condition is false  


if(condition-expression1) {  
    #code if above condition is true  
} elseif(condition-expression2){  
    #code if above condition is true  
elseif(condition-expression3) {  
    #code if above condition is true  
else {  
    #code if all the conditions are false  

2. Switch:

Switch is used to execute one set of statement from multiple conditions.

switch(expression, case-1, case-2, case-3....)   

3. For:

For loop is used to iterate a set of statements based on a condition.

for (value in vector) {  
  # code  

4. While:

While is also used to iterate a set of statements based on a condition. Usually while is preferred when number of iterations are not known in advance.

while(condition) {  
 # code 

5. Repeat:

Repeat is used tyo iterate a set of statements with out any condition. You can write a user-defined condition to exit from the loop using IF.

repeat {   
   if(condition-expression) {  


Function is a sub-routine which contains set of statements. Usually functions are written when multiple calls are required to same set of statements which increases re-usuability and modularity.

How to define a Function

func-name <- function(parameter_1, parameter_2, ...) {  
   #code for function body   

How to call a Function

function_name (parameters)


Vector is a basic data strucre where sequence of data values share same data type.

For example, the below statement assigns 1 to 10 values to x.
You can also use se() function to create vectors.

x <- 1:10
#using seq() function
 x <- seq(1, 10, by=2)

the above statement prints the output as [1] 1 3 5 7 9.
