### Data visualization using R

A 4-hour workshop taught by Mariola Moeyaert, Ph.D. Register Overview Data visualization is the quickest and most powerful technique to understand new and existing information. Exploratory data analysis (EDA) through visualizations marks the starting point of each data science project. The graphs produced during the EDA can inform which data analytic technique is best suitable. The data visualization can help communicate data science findings. This workshop will guide you on how to think about good data visualization. Through a series of examples, you…

A 4-hour workshop taught by Ryan S. Wells, Ph.D. You may also be interested in our increasing web survey response rates workshop. Register Overview Item-missing data is a serious concern for any quantitative researcher. Survey participants regularly skip questions, and administrative data is often incomplete. But what do to about this issue is not always straightforward. Researchers often analyze only complete cases (listwise deletion) or they impute missing information using means or regression analysis. These approaches can lead to biased estimates and artificially small standard…
