Title: Introduction to R, Part III;
Instructor: Peng Sun;
Course Information:
R is a free computing and graphical software/environment for statistical analysis. Part III of this short course consists of 3 sections:

-Section 5 introduces the concept of generalized linear models.  R will be used for performing logistic regression and Poisson regression.
-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.
-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.
