Free statistical software: EZR on R commander R is a free software environment for statistical computing and graphics.
R supports many functions for statistical analyses, but it does not incorporate
statistical graphical user interface (GUI). The R commander provides a
easy-to-use basic-statistics GUI to R based on Tcl/Tk language. However,
the statistical function of the R commander is limited, especially in the
field of biostatistics. Therfore, we added statistical functions, including
survival analyses, ROC analyses, metaanalyses, sample size calculation,
and so on, to the R commander. We named it "EZR" (Easy R) and
we are distributing it on this page. EZR can import Excel files, CSV files,
Stata files, and so on. EZR is now available on CRAN (The Comprehensive R Archive Network) as "RcmdrPlugin.EZR" package. Contact address: Yoshinobu Kanda, M.D., firstname.lastname@example.org.
Statistical functions of EZR
A complete manual of EZR is available only in Japanese (Chugai Igakusha,
ISBN978-4-498-10901-8), but a report that introduced the investigation
of EZR was published in Bone Marrow Transplantation (Nature Publishing
Group) as an Open article. It can be freely downloaded from the journal website (Kanda Y. Investigation of the freely available easy-to-use
software ‘EZR’ for medical statistics. Bone Marrow Transplantation 2013:48,452-458 advance online publication 3 December 2012; doi: 10.1038/bmt.2012.244). This paper has been cited in more than 400 articles at July, 2016.
Please cite this report as a reference for scientific papers in which
EZR is used as a statistical software.
In addition, Professor Minato Nakazawa (Kobe Univ. Grad. School Heallth Sci.) is providing an excellent manual for the use of R and EZR in medical statics on his homepage. It can be downloaded from the link below. (He told me that there may be some typos and mistakes, which will be fixed in the future.)
