Basic R Programming for Data Analysis

Tuesday, January 23, 2018 at 10:00am to 12:30pm

Building 4, 4-231
182 MEMORIAL DR (REAR), Cambridge, MA 02139

This hands-on, intermediate course will guide you through a variety of programming functions in the open-source statistical software program, R.

It is intended for those already comfortable with using R for data analysis who wish to move on to writing their own functions. To the extent possible this workshop uses real-world examples. Concepts will be introduced as they are needed for a realistic analysis task. In the course of working through a realistic project we will lean about interacting with web services, regular expressions, iteration, functions, control flow and more.

Prerequisite: basic familiarity with R, such as acquired from an introductory R workshop.

Bring your own laptop and install R ( and RStudio ( before the workshop.


Offered in conjuction with Data Science Services at Harvard's Institute for Quantitative Social Science.
