Getting familiar with R
- Class notes: There is no point in waiting to take an introductory class on how to use R. Instead, we have notes of our introductory class that you can download and view.
- Learning modules: We have developed a set of web pages called learning modules which show you how to accomplish basic data management tasks in R, including how to get data into R, how to recode variable and how to subset data. The R code and the output produced are shown, as well as tips on things to look out for.
