NADA for R: Nondetects and Data Analysis for the R statistical computing environment



Description:

NADA for R is a library package for the R environment for graphics and statistics. The package contains data and analysis methods described in the book Nondetects and Data Analysis: Statistics for Censored Environmental Data , Helsel (2005) -- See references below.

NADA for R can be used to plot data, generate summary statistics, compute exceedance probabilities, and perform hypothesis tests, on data containing multiple censoring thresholds (a.k.a nondetects, or less-thans).

All functions within NADA for R are presented within a clear, consistent, and easy to use framework.

Installing NADA for R:

The primary requirement for running the software is a working installation of the R environment. R can be obtained at http://www.r-project.org/.


Once R is installed and the machine has a functioning internet connection, the NADA package may be automatically installed using the following command:


> install.packages("NADA")


Both R and NADA for R are Free Software and can be obtained, used, modified and distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (version 2 or newer).
