Intermediate R Workshop

Tuesday, June 20, 2017
9:00 am
The D.B. Weldon Library (WL)
Room: Library Instruction Room (ground floor)

In this half-day workshop, we will work through example analyses from start to finish. This includes preparing and cleaning data, plotting, modelling (t-tests, linear models, logistic regression, etc.), and presentation. As we go, we will discuss the way R handles different symbols, syntax, functions, and arguments. Understanding these concepts will allow the user to expand their usage of R more quickly and extend their knowledge to new situations. We will also stress the importance of good coding habits, effective use of graphical methods, and using help files. Participants will follow along with all of the coding and leave the workshop with a file that can be easily modified to fit many different situations.

This workshop is suitable for people with a basic understanding of R (basic use of data frames, vectors, lists, etc). Attending the Introduction to R Workshop is sufficient to prepare you for this one. Participants are strongly encouraged to bring their own computers, but please ensure that both R and RStudio are installed.  R is the programming language itself and must be installed first ( RStudio Desktop provides a more friendly programming environment and is used in conjunction with R (

The workshop will be led by PhD candidates in the Department of Statistical & Actuarial Sciences in the Weldon Instruction Room (ground floor, Map & Data Centre, Weldon Library).
