Intro to Analysis with R
Start Date: 7/13/2020Start Time: 9:00 AM
End Date: 7/13/2020End Time: 4:00 PM

Event Description:

R is a powerful and open-source software package for statistical analysis that is, by some measures, becoming the standard for data analysis in the private, public and academic sectors. Its strengths are its open nature, flexibility, its capacity to produce compelling and informative graphics and the thousands of users that produce an astonishing array of packages that enable the software to perform statistical analyses.

This day-long session will introduce participants to R tailored to their topics of interest and level of familiarity with statistics and data analysis. Topics will include basic data management strategies, producing descriptive and bivariate statistics, the linear and generalized linear model and data visualization. 

This is a beginner course, and therefore does not require any specific prerequisites. An introductory statistics class would be beneficial, as would some experience working with a computer programming language. A lack of either of these experiences will not hinder your success in the course.

Please pre-install the software on your own device so you can follow along.
