Re: [R] Loop with string variable AND customizable "summary" output

Or, to throw yet another couple of possibilities into the mix:

lapply(split(YourDF, YourDF$country),

       function(x) summary(lm(y ~ x, data = x))

and:

library(nlme)
summary(lmList(y ~ x | country, YourDF))

See ?split and help(lmList, package = nlme)
