[Fall 2017] Meeting #5 - Introduction to R!

Post by LeanneElliott on Wed Sep 27, 2017 2:34 pm

Next week, Scott Fraundorf will be giving an overview of how to use R for data analysis in the social sciences. This will be more of a workshop-style presentation, so please feel free to bring your laptops and follow along! You can download R from https://www.r-project.org/ and you might also want to download R Studio, which adds a nicer user interface to R (but runs the same analyses).  It can be downloaded from here: https://www.rstudio.com/.  You'll first need to download & install regular R, then install R Studio. 

Lastly, example data that we'll use during the workshop is attached here. Fullboards won't allow us to upload csv files so it is an excel document, but if you download it, you can open the file and save it as a csv to get it back in the right format.

Here are the slides from Scott's presentation on Tuesday, including those that we didn't get to. Slides 50-52 indicate how to change specific values in a dataframe, slides 62-66 deal with different data types (e.g., distinguishing categorical vs continuous variables), and slides 67-69 deal with missing data.
