Description

R is one of the leading statistical programming languages used by statisticians and data scientists.
Part of the reason for its popularity is that it is sophisticated, versatile and flexible and has uses in a variety of fields, be it engineering, business, medicine or science. R allows data analysis in a variety of methods and also has capabilities to produce a range of graphics including charts, plots, and graphs that can be used for presentations. This course offers an expert’s eye overview of how these advanced tasks fit together in R as a whole along with practical examples.

You will learn about the primary functions of R such as its installation and how to use it for data analyses and manipulation. Through hands-on exercises and in-depth coaching, you will learn about R data structures, basic R commands, how to use graphics, writing R functions and R flow control structures.
