BeginneR’s Workshop

July 14th, 2021 (3:30-5pm EDT)

Join us for an introductory session on using R and RStudio to analyze data and create data visualizations.

We’ll be going over:

  • Using RStudio
  • Basics of R Programming
  • Making Plots
  • Data manipulation and visualization with an example CSV dataset (attached)

The example CSV dataset includes a collection of women-owned businesses in the Boston area and is available from the data.boston.gov website (https://data.boston.gov/dataset/women-owned-businesses).

We’re recommending that you have R and RStudio installed in advance of today’s talk so that you can follow along if you think that would be helpful to you.
