In this paper, it is presented a simple guide for researchers in occupational therapy to perform basic statistical analysis in a flexible and independent way, using the R software, that is a free open source software which its popularity has been increased considerably in many fields. We have presented a step-by-step guide about how to install such software, it is also discussed the necessary steps to include the data set and perform basic statistical analysis, such as the calculation of sample size, basic statistics, graphical presentation, hypothesis tests, and the linear correlation test. The dataset considered in this study comes from a research in occupational therapy and the topics considered are result of the common statistical procedures that were face in the course of the Post Graduation Program in Occupational Therapy at the Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar), in which were possible to find the principal statistical procedures used by the researchers in applications.
