SUMMARY:Data Visualisation With R
UID:{http://www.columbasystems.com/customers/uom/gpp/eventid/}bu0-kwm1cqt

DESCRIPTION:In collaboration with the Economics department at the Univers
ity of Manchester. This course is spread over two days\, you must be ab
le to attend both days.\n\nDay 1: Monday 21st February 9am -12.30pm\n\nD
ay 2 : Tuesday 22nd February 9am-12.30pm\n\nData visualisation is a key
statistical tool for effective communication and to understand aspects o
f data and models. The statistical language R is used widely for data an
alysis and visualization\, e.g. the BBC Visual and Data Journalism team
uses ggplot2 R-package to create production-ready charts. This workshop
will teach you how to create production-ready graphics using the grammar
of graphics implemented in ggplot2 R-package. In addition\, the worksho
p will teach you how to construct more complex plots\, including maps\,
and discuss inference for statistical graphics to understand if what we
see in a plot is really there. The workshop will be hands-on with plenty
of practical examples.\n\nTarget audience:\n\nThis workshop is suitable
for those who know R but are not familiar or comfortable with using ggp
lot2 or would like a refresher on ggplot2. \n\nRequirements:\n• basic R
knowledge (e.g. you have used R to load data\, create simple visualisati
ons\, perform basic analyses and write simple functions or more specific
ally\, you are familiar with concepts in Cookbook for R by Winston Chang
)\n• basic statistics (e.g. simple linear regression\, hypothesis testin
g\, basic summary statistics and plots)\n• computer (with ability to ins
tall R and R-packages)\, microphone and web camera \n• stable internet c
onnection\n• Install the video conferencing software\, zoom and know how
to use zoom\n\nTo sign up\, click here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/21
