Introduction to R - 2 day workshop
Advanced Training

R is an interactive computing environment and programming language designed for statistical analysis and graphics. R provides access to an ever expanding library of sophisticated routines and it is increasingly used in many fields of research including economics, medicine, biology and social science. The aim of this workshop is to help research students to get started on their own data analysis. The target audience are people with basic statistical knowledge but little or no programming experience.

Topics will include:

  • An introduction to the R environment: syntax, R objects, creating and manipulating R objects
  • The use of packages and libraries, using built-in functions, and other R basics
  • Reading in data and basic data analysis: numerical and graphical summaries

Please note this is a 2 day workshop and you must attend both days.

We will be running a second 2-day workshop in the spring term for more advanced users of R.
