Introduction to Analysis with R
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. It’s 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 packages. 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.
