R for Data Science: IV: Regression in R

Friday, December 1, 2017 - 9:00am to 4:00pm
Event Information: 

This is the fourth and final of the four R workshops. The purpose of this sequence of four workshops is to take students from no experience in R or data science to a level of proficiency in which they can (1) visualize, (2) manipulate, and (3) perform introductory statistical methods on a dataset. The sequence is divided into 4 full-day sessions, each with a morning and afternoon session that consists of lecture, pair programming, and review.

The original use case for R was for statistical models, and it is still what R does perhaps best. In this workshop, we introduce regression, focusing on both the basics of fitting and interpreting regressions, and also methods using the regression output objects. We will also introduce the concepts of holding data out of sample, and use this as an opportunity to introduce for loops.
