Center for Statistical Training & Consulting: Statistical Graphics and R
(Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)
This workshop is presented by Dr. William Jacoby of the Department of Political Science. The workshop will begin with a discussion of the principles underlying effective graphical displays and a tour of some specific graphical methods for univariate, bivariate, and multivariate data. But, most of the course will be devoted to the R functions for reading data and constructing various kinds of graphs (including histograms, smoothed histograms, dot plots, scatterplots, and trellis displays). We also will cover many Atips and tricks for customizing graphs to fit specific data analysis situations. The format of the workshop will include a lecture component to introduce basic ideas, concepts, and examples. But, most of the time will be devoted to hands-on training in the computer laboratory, creating graphical displays with the tools in R. The workshop will break from Noon-1pm to allow time for lunch.
