R for the social sciences, workshop registration now open

For the third year in a row, our department will offer a workshop series on R for the social sciences in collaboration with the UF Informatics Institute. The workshops are free and open to all UF students, faculty, and staff.

Eight weekly workshops from October to December 2019 will provide an introduction to the R programming language for data analysis in the social sciences, including data import and management, descriptive statistics and graphics, linear and generalized linear models, multilevel analysis, and social network analysis.

All sessions will be held at the UF Informatics Institute. Topics, schedule and registration links are available here. Each session is limited to 30 participants and registration is required. The workshops will be taught by Tom Smith (Department of Sociology and Criminology & Law), Till Krenz (UF Bureau of Economic and Business Research), and Raffaele Vacca (Department of Sociology and Criminology & Law).

This workshop series is organized by the UF R Social Sciences Interest Group (RSSIG) in collaboration with the Department of Sociology and Criminology & Law, and the Informatics Institute. It is supported in part by the Bureau of Economic and Business Research and by the Clinical and Translational Science Institute.
