About the course

Back to course listing

This course is for people who want to learn to use R: a freely-available computer package for statistics used by professional researchers and statisticians.

R can carry out standard statistical analyses, and also has powerful facilities for users to create their own commands for non-standard analyses or for new statistical methods.

Users of R frequently publish the code for their commands on the internet for others to use.

It will cover the following topics.

  • Obtaining the R package from the internet
  • Data entry and simple summary statistics
  • Basic statistical procedures
  • Obtaining and using commands (functions) designed by other researchers
  • Developing your own commands (functions) for non-standard analyses
