Notes on data used in this book

For R and Python users, each of the data sets used in this book can be downloaded individually by following the code in each chapter. Alternatively for R users who intend to work through all of the chapters, all data sets can be loaded into an R session in advance by installing and loading the peopleanalyticsdata R package.

# install peopleanalyticsdata package
install.packages("peopleanalyticsdata")
library(peopleanalyticsdata)

# see a list of data sets
data(package = "peopleanalyticsdata")

# find out more about a specific data set ('managers' example)
help(managers)

Solutions to exercises

It is not my intention to publish a comprehensive set of solutions to the exercises in this book. Many of the exercises can be approached in different ways and I think it is important that readers apply their learning without being constrained to an example solution. However, some specific questions have generated considerable interest from readers and I have started to post example solutions to those questions here. Illustrative solutions submitted by readers will progressively be posted there also.

Happy modeling!
