This multi-day workshop is designed for non-science students interested in the statistical computing program R. No prior knowledge of R is required. Often data outside of the sciences includes textual data, such as a corpus or series of surveys. In this workshop we’ll learn how to process textual data in R, as well as the basic skills to start analyzing it. Specific topics covered include the R environment (directories, workspace, scripts, and packages), data structures (vector, matrix, data frames, lists), and the beginnings of simple data analysis (built-in statistical packages, elementary statistics, etc.).
You need to attend all 5 days. Different topics are covered each day and it builds on materials covered on the previous day, so if you miss a day, we won't have the resources to help you catch up in this online environment. A rough draft of the topics being covered each day will be forthcoming. They will be refined each day as required.
