Course Syllabus

Abstract

The course covers theoretical and practical basics of working with quantitative data in the social sciences. We will start with the foundations of interacting with Excel, namely spreadsheet structure and basic formulas. During more advanced sessions we will study logic functions, pivot tables, and text data. A significant part of the course will be devoted to the programming language R. We will study different types and classes of objects within R as well as math and logical operators. Data subsetting in base R will be complemented by data manipulation and aggregation with tidyverse. The course will also introduce students to data visualisation with ggplot2 and tidyverse packages. Our last meetings will focus on a brief overview of several advanced R packages.
