Description

Introduction to Coding and Graphics in R – ONS/GSS

You will have to register and attend both days in order to participate.

This is a two day classroom taught course that introduces participants to coding in R. The course aims to introduce the R syntax, several of the in-built features of R, as well as how to structure an R program. The course also teaches participants how to take an existing code base, and understand and adapt what it does.

By the end of the course, participants will:

  • be able to create a R program and run it, assessing output;
  • understand R code written by others;
  • describe and use built in mathematical and string operations;
  • read data from files into data tables;
  • manipulate tables;
  • write data tables to files;
  • perform summary functions on whole datasets and groupings;
  • combine data tables;
  • develop control structures and conditional statements;
  • understand usage of modules and where to find more;
  • create simple graphs; and
  • be able to write their own functions for re-use.

Introduction to Graphics in R – ONS/GSS

This is a one-day classroom taught course that builds on the knowledge gleaned from the Introduction to Coding in R course. The course aims to introduce participants to simple plots, and to explore how to produce graphics in R. The course introduces the ‘Lattice’ package and closes with the ‘ggplot2’ package, both of which can be used for advanced graphical outputs.

By the end of the course, participants will:

  • understand how to produce histograms, bar charts and scatter plots;
  • be able to explore data using graphics in R; and
  • understand how to customise graphical outputs.

Method of Delivery: This is a two days taught session, at the London, Newport and Titchfield ONS sites.

Target audience: This is aimed at any staff from across the ONS/GSS, who are keen to learn to programme using R and who are keen to develop their R programming skills.
