Data Wrangling in R (online)



Organised by:

The University of Edinburgh


Dr Chris Playford, Quantitative Sociologist at the University of Exeter


Intermediate (some prior knowledge)


Laura Marshall
Working week: Monday - Thursday

Venue: Online


Social science data is increasingly complex and routinely requires substantial preparation prior to analysis. This aspect of the data analysis workflow is often overlooked in many courses covering statistical modelling.


This one-day course will demonstrate a range of useful functions using R, through the extensive capabilities of the dplyr and tidyverse suit of commands.


The workshop is specifically designed for social scientists, and social science data and examples will be showcased throughout the workshop.


The event is intended to be engaging and informative, it will be delivered online during the COVID-19 crisis.  Course Timings: 10:00 - 16:00


This is a hands-on workshop using R.


This is not an introductory workshop. In order to benefit from the workshop participants must already have some experience of using R.

Students will need to have installed R and RStudio. These are available from:
