This workshop will introduce you to some popular R functions and packages for data cleaning and visualisation. Using a sample dataset, we will show how to shape and manipulate your data for visualisation purposes. Topics will include how to wrangle your data for creating different types of plots (such as scatter plot, bar chart, box plot), labelling, and exporting plots.
You must have attended the ‘Introduction to R and RStudio for descriptive statistics’ workshop or be confident in importing data into R and writing a basic R script.
You should also be familiar with commonly used plots for data visualisation and their application to different types of data.
By the end of this workshop you will be able to:
use popular R packages and functions for data cleaning
prepare data for analysis and visualisation
create publication quality plots for continuous and categorical quantitative data
