INTR-D 602 - Introduction to Quantitative Research Methods using R

3 Credit(s) | Lecture | Graded
Not repeatable for credit

This is a workshop-based course that draws material from two SAGE campus courses, Introduction to R and Practical Data Management with R to teach statistical concepts and methods for quantitative research methods using the public domain software R. This course will have two main foci. The first is a statistical focus that includes descriptive and inferential statistical concepts and the interpretation of statistical results. The second is applied quantitative data management and analysis in R, an open-source software that allows researchers to perform a wide variety of procedures. A primary goal of the course is to provide students with a near-complete foundation to use R for all commonly encountered tasks in political, social, economic and health science research. The course is designed to be relevant to a wide range of disciplinary graduate programs.
