Workshop: an Introduction to Statistics Using R ("R for Dummies")Have you been avoiding attending one of the statistical workshops over the years because you felt that the topic was over your head? Do you feel you need to shake off that dust when it comes to statistics? If so, this is the statistical workshop for you! R (www.r-project.org) is a programming package for statistical computing and graphics and has become extremely popular, especially since it is free. In this workshop, we will introduce R and illustrate some of the tools that are available for using R, including graphical and statistical. The focus of this workshop will be at an introductory level and should be understandable to all who are interested in learning more about statistics and statistical computing. This session will follow the tradition of the epidemiology committee's workshops on "bringing statistical analysis to the masses." All registrants will need to have a laptop with R installed. The workshop is limited to 60 participans. Check #19 on the registration form. Fee: $35
