en  Introduction to statistical programming in R

Speakers: Dr. Ivailo Partchev

Winter term 2009/2010, Workshop, Course length: 9.00 hours, Language: English, Topic: Introduction and Statistics with R

R is both a powerful computing language suitable for statistical applications, and a platform providing access to an immense collection of community-developed statistical software.

The first day of this 1,5 day workshop will provide an introduction to R accessible to beginners, but focused on selected aspects of the language. Compared to my earlier workshop (available on video), I will place more emphasis on programming issues, with examples drawn mainly from Monte-Carlo and bootstrap simulations.

The remainder of the workshop will give a very short introduction to R facilities for analysing categorical data: producing tables of counts and percentages, visualizing categorical data, fitting log-linear and marginal models.
