Overall Satisfaction with RStudio
We use RStudio for statistics-related endeavors on our research projects. We use it frequently for accessing and analyzing our data in descriptive and predictive type analyses. It helps us address issues such as underperformance in schools and other education settings, or even issues of inequity and exclusion of vulnerable populations.

Personally, I would prefer SPSS over RStudio and SAS, but the cost for licenses for SPSS deters me from continuing to go with IBM's statistics software. RStudio has the advantage in that it is low cost and there are a lot of available resources on YouTube available for users to pull from.

RStudio is perfect for statisticians who want to run descriptive and predictive analyses but do not want to spend big money to acquire a license from a competing statistics software. It is less suited for scenarios in which a company will reimburse for a license, in which I would recommend IBM's SPSS over Rstudio.
