Book Description
People Analytics (also known as HR Analytics or Workforce Analytics) refers to the analysis of data from human resources (human capital) in conjunction with other company data. People Analytics is based on research fields such as social psychology, motivational psychology and behavioral science as well as business intelligence, predictive analytics and big data.
This open access book prepares current and aspiring analytics professionals to effectively address this need by curating key concepts spanning the entire analytics lifecycle, along with stepbystep instructions for their applications to realworld problems, using ubiquitous and freely available opensource software.
This book does not assume prior knowledge of statistics, how to query databases, or how to write performant code; early chapters include an introduction to R and SQL as well as an overview of statistical foundations.
About the Authors Craig Starbuck is a leading expert in people analytics, who has built and led successful people analytics teams at Roku, Robinhood, Mastercard, Equifax, and TD Ameritrade, after spending a decade in various data engineering and analytics positions in the banking and health care industries.

Analyzing US Census Data: Methods, Maps, and Models in R
This book introduces readers to tools in the R programming language for accessing and analyzing Census data from the United States Census Bureau and shows how to carry out demographic analyses in a single computing environment.

Exploratory Data Analysis with R (Roger D. Peng)
This book covers the essential exploratory techniques for summarizing data with R. These techniques are typically applied before formal modeling commences and can help inform the development of more complex statistical models.

R for Data Science: Visualize, Model, Transform, Tidy, Import
This book teaches you how to do data science with R: You'll learn how to get your data into R, get it into the most useful structure, transform it, visualize it and model it, how data science can help you work with the uncertainty and capture the opportunities.

Data Mining and Analysis: Fundamental Concepts and Algorithms
This textbook provides a broad yet indepth overview of data mining, integrating related concepts from machine learning and statistics. The main parts of the book include exploratory data analysis, pattern mining, clustering, and classification.

Advanced Data Analysis from an Elementary Point of View
This is a textbook on data analysis methods, intended for advance undergraduate students who have already taken classes in probability, mathematical statistics, and linear regression. It presumes that you can read and write simple functions in R.

Mining of Massive Datasets (Jure Leskovec, et al)
It focuses on practical algorithms that have been used to solve key problems in data mining and can be applied successfully to the largest datasets. It begins with a discussion of the mapreduce framework, an important tool for parallelizing algorithms automatically.

Data Mining for the Masses (Matthew North)
This book uses simple examples, clear explanations and free, powerful, easytouse software to teach you the basics of data mining; techniques that can help you answer some of your toughest business questions.

Forecasting: Principles and Practice (Rob J. Hyndman, et al.)
This textbook provides a comprehensive introduction to forecasting methods and presents enough information about each method for readers to use them sensibly. Examples use R with many data sets taken from the authors' own consulting experience.

Bayesian Data Analysis (Andrew Gelman, et al.)
This classic book is widely considered the leading text on Bayesian methods, lauded for its accessible, practical approach to analyzing data and solving research problems. It takes an applied approach to analysis using uptodate Bayesian methods.

Answering Questions with Data (Matthew Crump, et al.)
This is a free textbook teaching introductory statistics for undergraduates. Students will learn to select an appropriate data analysis technique, carry out the analysis, and draw appropriate conclusions.

Basic Data Analysis and More  A Guided Tour using Python
In this book, a selection of frequently required statistical tools will be introduced and illustrated. An exemplary implementation of the presented techniques using the Python programming language is provided.

O'Reilly® Think Bayes: Bayesian Statistics in Python
If you know how to program, you're ready to tackle Bayesian statistics. With this book, you'll learn how to solve statistical problems with Python code instead of mathematical formulas, using discrete probability distributions rather than continuous mathematics.

Bayesian Methods for Hackers: Probabilistic Programming
This book illuminates Bayesian inference through probabilistic programming with the powerful PyMC language and the closely related Python tools NumPy, SciPy, Matplotlib, through practical examples and computation  no advanced mathematics required.

An Introduction to Bayesian Thinking (Merlise Clyde, et al.)
This book provides an introduction to Bayesian inference in decision making without requiring calculus. It may be used on its own as an openaccess introduction to Bayesian inference using R for anyone interested in learning about Bayesian statistics.
