Basics of the R programming language - data wrangling and data visualization

The aim of the statistical course, organized by COORDINATE project, is to familiarize participants with the basics of the open source programming language R and to teach data wrangling and data visualization using the R language and software packages from its ecosystem. The course is open to academic researchers from PhD students to full professors, as well as policy practitioners and other researchers or analysts working in EU Member States and Associated Countries.

The course will be based around data provided by the Generations & Gender Programme. The Generations & Gender Programme Research Infrastructure provides scientists and policy makers with high quality and timely data about families and life course trajectories of individuals to enable researchers to contribute insights and answers to current societal and public policy challenges.

This course teaches the participants the basics of the R programming language, how to use it to prepare data for visualization and analysis, and how to visualize data. The course will be conducted in the free and popular RStudio integrated development environment. During the course, participants will be given tips and tricks that make everyday work in RStudio easier.

The course will be conducted in English. Participants are expected to bring their own laptop with R and RStudio installed. Additional information regarding the required tools, packages and data will be sent to accepted applicants.
