December 7, 2021 @ 9:00 AM – December 10, 2021 @ 5:00 PM
Statistical analyses are regularly required for nearly every quantitative scientific study. Although simple data analysis tools are tenable for small-scale analyses, more rigorous software can enhance analysis replicability, improve data management, and facilitate more advanced analysis techniques in addition to scaling up to larger datasets. One such program, R is a free, open-source software that is standard for data analysis across numerous fields. This course will provide an introduction for using R to perform statistical analyses.
