This page is what is called `work in progress’. It began with notes I started writing on cinemetric data analysis using R, intended to document R code needed to get some fairly simple (and in some cases not so simple) data analysis. Quite a bit of this is written and the contents section below is indicative of what currently exists. Other sections will follow.

What is currently on show is an introduction, which outlines what I think I’m doing and why, and some detailed examples, chapters on how to begin with R and the use of descriptive statistics, several chapters on graphical data analysis, and a chapter on the analysis of shot-scale data. What is missing of what is currently thought-out and currently being written are chapters on handling large bodies of data and a case-study centered on the issue of whether shot-length distributions are lognormal or not..

Apart from adding to it, the details of what’s there may be modified from time to time so errors, including those of omission, failure to attribute ideas to their originator, misconceptions or misrepresentations of what others have done, and so on can be dealt with, if I’m told of them.
