CANCELLED – ICPSR – Statistical Graphics

May 23, 2017 @ 7:39 pm

This class has been CANCELLED.


This workshop will cover strategies for obtaining visual displays of quantitative information. We will discuss ways to, quite literally, look at data and statistical models in pictorial form. This is important because graphical representations avoid some of the restrictive and simplistic assumptions that often are encountered in empirical analyses.

The first day of the workshop will present graphical displays for univariate, bivariate, multivariate, and categorical data. The second and third days will be devoted to producing graphical displays using tools available in the R statistical computing environment.

The workshop will focus primarily on the “lattice” package, although we will also examine some of the other graphical packages that exist within R. No previous experience with R is necessary to take this workshop! The second day will begin with a brief session on “Just Enough R for Graphics.”

The instructor will provide a variety of substantive examples and datasets to illustrate the various graphical techniques that are available. Workshop participants are also encouraged to bring their own datasets for constructing graphical displays that are tailored to their particular needs and interests.

Instructor: William Jacoby
