Automating this by creating an "sem()" function is a piece of cake. > rm(sem) # get rid of the object we created above > ?sem # check to see if something I tested them both 1000 times against 10^6 million rnorm draws (not enough power to push them harder than that).

Hit Enter. I usually do. Used with permission. coef() extracts the model coefficients from the lm object and the additional content in a summary.lm object.

All Rights Reserved. A window will open in which you can type your script. Drop the script into your working directory, and then read it into R using the source() function. And who came up with that convoluted syntax?

What's behind the word "size issues"? Also, if you are an instructor and use this book in your course, please let me know. se <- function(x) sqrt(var(x)/length(x)) share|improve this answer edited Jan 13 '14 at 14:02 answered Apr 20 '10 at 19:03 John 15.3k32659 2 Interestingly, your function and Ian's are nearly identically asked 6 years ago viewed 154873 times active 8 months ago Linked 1 Using R program to make scatter plots with standard errors Related 207Is there a built-in function for finding

Then we tell R we want to define this as a function by typing "=function". When to use standard deviation? sd(x, na.rm=FALSE) x: numeric vector na.rm: missing values should be removed or not > x r r [1] 13.39602 The standard error equals sd/√n: > x se se [1] It's there.

The length() function counts NAs as data values and doesn't tell you. (Which is why we couldn't use it above--it would have given the wrong value for n.) Let's create another So from the command line... > setwd("Rspace") # if you've created this directory > rm(list=ls()) # clean out the workspace > ls() character(0) > nums = rnorm(25, mean=100, sd=15) # create Summing the result of this function has the effect of counting up the number of TRUE responses, i.e., the number of missings for is.na, and the number of not missings for Fine!) Close the editor window.

Thus, as soon as you type {, the } will also appear. If you ask me, R has some annoying idiosyncrasies.

up vote 53 down vote favorite 14 Is there any command to find the standard error of the mean in R? This can also be extended to test (in terms of null hypothesis testing) differences between means. Annoying! Executing a script does everything typing those commands in the Console would do, EXCEPT print things to the Console.

Nothing to it, right? :) revised 2016 January 13 | Table of Contents | Function Reference | Function Finder | R Project | R Tutorial An R Introduction to Statistics About The sem is going to be calculated on a data object--a vector in this case--so we have to pass the data to the function, and that is the point of "(x)". Conversely, plotrix's function was always slower than even the slowest runs of those two functions - but it also has a lot more going on under the hood. –Matt Parker Apr It depends.

Standard deviation Standard deviation is a measure of dispersion of the data from the mean. Both derivations use n-1 in the denominator so they are based on sample data. I don't like it. If you're working in the Windows R GUI (also in the Mac R GUI), there is even a built-in script editor.

Full list of contributing R-bloggers R-bloggers was founded by Tal Galili, with gratitude to the R community. Can I release a pattern without releasing the whole held expression? If you are interested in the precision of the means or in comparing and testing differences between means then standard error is your metric. Use your browser to save this page to your desktop.

sd <- sqrt(var(x)) # standard deviation cv <- sd / mean(x) # coefficient of variation ss <- mean( x^2 ) # sum of squares - definitions vary ! After you hit the Enter key, R will see that you are defining a function, and it will give you the + prompt, meaning "tell me more." Type an open curly If the message you want to carry is about the spread and variability of the data, then standard deviation is the metric to use.
