Course description:

This one day workshop is directed to those who have a working knowledge of basic statistical concepts and want to transition to the R environment. Using realistic examples from day to day research practice, it will cover the entire process from receiving a dataset to producing an analysis output ready for write-up, covering the most common problems that may occur along the way.

At the end of the workshop, attendees will be able to:

  • Read in datasets in various formats
  • Clean and prepare variables for the analysis
  • Explore and describe the data (producing table of descriptive statistics)
  • Visualise the data (basic plots and graphs)
