Date: 
Friday, October 29, 2021 - 10:00 to 12:00

Statistical Inference with R: Inference for Categorical Data (Virtual)

Building on a basic knowledge of R and introductory statistics, this workshop will walk you through the R functionality you'll need to use when conducting hypothesis tests on categorical data. We will practice reading in data, creating 2x2 tables, conducting tests of proportion, chi-square tests, and computing measures of association. It is recommended that you have used R before (even if you consider yourself a beginner) and it is also recommended that you have taken an introductory statistics course.

Prior to the workshop, participants should install R first, followed by the free version of RStudio Desktop. Registrants will be emailed installation instructions. If you need help installing these, please schedule a Coding Consultation and we'd be glad to help you.

This workshop is part of the Using Programming and Code for Research workshop series for for anyone who wants to get started or learn more about use programming languages like Python, R, or other applications. These tools can help you to collect, manipulate, clean, analyze, and visualize research data or automate many repetitive tasks. If you need personalized assistance with a data analysis, programming, or coding project, consider booking a consultation with one of our librarian-experts.

All sessions are free to GW students, faculty, staff, and alumni.
