Last line of R code at the bottom of the page

The line of R code: suburbs[ c(1, 3)] should be: suburbs[ c(1, 4)] Column 4 contains the population numbers, Column 3 contains the state abbreviations.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Erratum report is correct. Somehow, the R code and its related output are mismatched. (I'm not clear how this happened. Cut-and-paste error, perhaps?) The example must be corrected. The relevant recipe is "Selecting Data Frame Columns by Position".

4th line from the bottom

The line: cor.test(x, y, method="Spearman") should be: cor.test(x, y, method="spearman") R is case sensitive, so using "Spearman" (initial caps) doesn't work.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Erratum report is correct. In the text, replace "Spearman" with "spearman" in R code.

4th line from the Bottom

The line: Use method="Spearman" when working ... should be: Use method="spearman" when working ... R is case sensitive, so trying to pass "Spearman" (with initial caps) as the method won't work.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Erratum report is correct. Text should say "spearman", not "Spearman".

7th, 6th, and 2nd line from bottom

The function: outlier.test has been deprecated. It should be replaced by: outlierTest

Note from the Author or Editor:
Erratum report is correct. Recipe should be changed/rewritten to use "outlierTest" function since outlier.test function is not obsolete.
