Exploring Employee Attrition and Performance with R

Data Science Using R, Data Science
Based on IBM's fictional data set created by their data scientists. Introduction: Employee Attrition is when an employee leaves a company due to normal means, (loss of customers, retirement, and resignation), and there is not someone to fill the vacancy. Can a company identify employee’s that are likely to leave a company? A company with a high employee attrition rate is a good sign of underlying problems and can affect a company in a very negative way. One such way is the cost related to finding and training a replacement, as well as the possible strain it can put on other workers that in the meantime have to cover. Preprocessing: This dataset was produced by IBM and has just under 1500 observations of 31 different variables including attrition. 4 of the variables (EmployeeNumber, Over18

Learn To Manipulate Data Frames Using The “mtcars” Dataset Below is an introduction to programming with r, all code in this exercise is only using base r and no other libraries are needed. Task 1: Create a new column to find Displacement per Cylinder  Create a new variable (DisplacementPerCylinder), to calculate the total displacement per cylinder in cubic inches for each vehicle from the mtcars dataset. # "str" allows you to display the internal structure of an R object str(mtcars) ## 'data.frame': 32 obs. of 11 variables: ## $ mpg : num 21 21 22.8 21.4 18.7 18.1 14.3 24.4 22.8 19.2 ... ## $ cyl : num 6 6 4 6 8 6 8 4 4 6 ... ## $ disp: num 160 160 108 258 360 ... ## $ hp : num 110 110 93 110 175 105 245 62 95 123 ... ## $ drat: num 3.9 3.9 3.85 3.08 3
