R is an environment for statistical computing and graphics suitable for routine data analysis while retaining the flexibility and control of a programming language. In this workshop, participants will be introduced to the structure of R through demonstrations of several common tasks including managing data, performing analyses, and creating graphics. Demonstrations will be illustrated with examples using public domain data from Health.gov. We will also discuss the R package system for sharing data and code while briefly touching on best practices for productive and reproducible analyses in R.

An email will be sent to registrants on March 8 with full details of the prep work required to participate in the seminar.
