R by Example: Analyzing RECS using tidyverse
January 30 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Modern Languages Building (MLB), Room 2001B
In the R by Example series of workshops, we’ll discuss example analyses in R as a vehicle for learning commonly used tools and programming patterns. The “Analyzing RECS using tidyverse” workshop will focus on analyzing winter home temperatures in the US using data from the Residential Energy Consumption Survey (https://www.eia.gov/consumption/residential/). We’ll use the tidyverse (tidyverse.org) throughout, relying on the dplyr package for data manipulations and ggplot2 for plotting. The workshop will be organized in a parallel fashion, with participants given time to build an analysis from scratch by adapting presented examples step by step. In the process, participants will become familiar with core dplyr functions, pivoting using tidyr, and a basic ggplot2 example. This workshop is geared towards beginner to intermediate R users.
