Title: Introduction to R, Part III;\n
Course
Information: \n
\n
R is a free computing
and graphical software/environment for statistical
analysis. Part III of this short course
consists of 3 sections:\n
- Section 5 introduces
the concept of generalized linear models.
R will be used for performing logistic
regression and Poisson regression.\n
- Section
6 introduces the concept of categorical data
analysis. Topics to be covered include: graphical
displays of categorical data, measures
of association, and contingency tables analyses.
\n
- Section 7 will cover writing functions
in R. Users can write functions in R to
carry out operations and return one or more
values. Examples of functions will be given and
participants will also be given exercises
to help with writing their own functions.\n
\n
Note: experience using R or attending Part I
and Part II of this series is suggested but not
required for Part III.\n
