Introduction to R

This short course offered by the Center for Social Research provides a tutorial about the program and what it can offer as a primary or supplemental statistical package.  Statistical Consultant Michael Clark will cover installation and download of additional packages, simple scripting, analysis, and graphics as well as provide suggestions about how to proceed once armed with the basics.  This short course assumes no prior experience with R and will focus on a basic understanding of the concepts essential to programming in R so that participants will feel comfortable continuing to use R on their own.  There is no cost to faculty, staff, or students to participate, but capacity is limited and online registration is required.
