I plan to use it in life sciences. We use of course basic descriptive statistics but also classification using ACP and CAH (French abbreviation for Principal Component Analysis and Hierarchical Cluster Analysis). We also use logistic regression for classifying some results of clinical laboratory analyses.

In fact, I have been a user of SPSS for - quite - a long time. The price of the licences are increasing and it becomes a problem for us (many thousand of euros). I am the only user and don't work with the programs on a daily basis. So - I confess - I am investigating R. And I am more and more convinced by the possibilities it offers.
