Event description

Description

In the first of the new TRiSS Social Science Methods Series, Stefan Müller, PhD Candidate in Political Science, will lead a workshop entitled:

Data Wrangling and Visualisation Using R

In most quantitative research, data analysis constitutes only the last part of a project. Prior to analysing data, often we need to reshape, merge, filter, recode, or rearrange our data. Moreover, reproducible data visualisation is an increasingly important and necessary tool for researchers in social science disciplines. The workshop introduces the R packages dplyr for data wrangling and the powerful ggplot2 package for data visualisation. After a general introduction to the “tidy data” approach, participants will apply the five most important functions for data transformation, and get the know "grammar of graphics" of the ggplot2 package.

While the course is designed for those who have used R in some form previously, expertise in R is not required, and even those with no previous knowledge of R are welcome. Please bring your own laptop for use on the day. All materials for this course as well as supporting information will be made available at: https://github.com/stefan-mueller/data-workshop.
