IHA Seminar: an overview of R Statistical Software
Published: Monday 5th December 2016
IHA's last Research Methods Seminar for the year will be held next Friday 16 December at 2pm, when Manoj Chandrabose will offer an overview of R statistical software. All interested colleagues are welcome to attend in person or by telephone or audio-visual conference.
Manoj Chandrabose's seminar will offer an overview of R statistical software – a free software which is becoming increasingly popular among researchers for statistical data analysis and graphical visualisation. R’s large number of Contributed Packages, makes it a good alternative to commercial statistical packages such as STATA, SAS or SPSS.
This seminar will introduce you to R and RStudio which is an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) of R. The seminar will also demonstrate how to perform some standard data analysis (linear and logistic regression, ANOVA etc) through Graphical User Interface (GUI) packages of R - without using commands. The ways of developing your R skills for advanced data analysis will also be explained briefly.
IHA encourages interested colleagues to attend in person at the IHA offices (Room 6.02, Level 6, 215 Spring street Melbourne), or by telephone or audio-visual conference.
ACU colleagues can dial in from a campus A/V meeting room, or by using Polycom Realpresence on their computer desktop. A/V room bookings can be made via Servicedesk@acu.edu.au or by calling 07 3623 7272. The Servicedesk can also assist with Polycom installation on your PC or laptop.
